Have been drawing reptiles as they have given me more inspiration towards the dragon picture book.
Looking in particular at eyes and skin/skin patterns. May now use this more realistic look and apply it to my dragon for the picture book. Once I have applied it I will start focusing on whats going on around the dragon, like the scenery and other things. I'm not happy with the style at the moment of the dragon scene i illustrated previously. If i want it to look realistic I need to refine my drawing but this will be hard work.
These are my original sketches from before. It was here I was deciding wether to go more realistic or do my own take on the dragons skin and going for more of a simple pattern that iv'e used in previous work. so i'm just showing were I am at the moment, trying to get more realism into my drawings. i think this is one of the main things I have realised from doing this project and also the fact that i need to be drawing the bigger picture and not just focusing on one thing. I will be putting the drawings up of the scenes soon with a more realistic take on them. Any comments or advise on what i'm doing would help thanks.
