Practice limbs and head – Dragon
I want to sketch a dragon, one that is earthy and solid. I have an idea in my head, I can picture the scene. I just need to practice a lot before I do it. So I’ve practiced doing a few limbs. I find feet (just like the human ones) very hard to get right. I like the last one best but instead of a flat foot I will lift it off the ground. I also like the crouching one but am undecided if I will use it. The front leg one has a problem foot as well so I will make some adjustments.
I also practiced a few heads. The first two turned out rather shocking, as I described them to a friend,
“The first one looks kind of like a goat on steroids and the second like a deranged bird with a bad bite”.
So I will only post the third, which I rather like but I think looks more dinosaur than dragon and my daughter thinks it needs to look far meaner to be a dragon. So I am going to do another practice head, when I have the chance, with a more lizard-like appearance and see how that goes. Once the project is complete, I will post it onto here. In the meantime, here is my dinosaur-dragon head 🙂
