Ah, it's been awhile since I submitted anything. But finally I was able to pull through and finish something! I've been working on this piece for a couple weeks now and while I have a lot of problems with it (composition, colors, planning ahead, to name a few) I'm glad I just powered through and got it done. It was nice to draw and paint again. I also found it difficult to merge a traditionally colored piece with a full digital background. Not sure if I still like the outcome.
I haven't drawn any sort of "mystical" beast for a while so this one gave me all sorts of challenges. I had no idea what to do so I just added a bunch of spikes and stuff haha. It sort of looks like a dragon crossed with a lobster. OTL OH well, it was fun inking this and then coloring it.
Critiques are always welcome!
