    Can't get a decent pic to save my life, so can't see some of the detail, like in the teeth. But hey ho. This is going to be a display piece in a paintshop if it turns out ok. Looks a bit stickerish at the moment, but there will be two eyes in the background, and some smoke to hopefully help with that. (hopefully lol) DSCF2311 (1280x784).jpg Trying to do more colour stuff, NOT my forte. Not that this is particularly colourful, but the eyes should be I hope.

    Look great so far.
    My only observation (not criqique) is that the shape of the dragon will fit better with the thank body if you flip it horizontaly .
    In a bike obviously the dragon must look to the front in most cases , but as you say this will be a exhibition piece

    Maybe I'm talking too much too early , lets see how is the complete image

    This could be quite a popular piece once the second Hobbit movie gets released.

    Thanks Diego. I did think about having it face the other way as you are right and it would fit the shape of the tank better, but I want to do some eyes in the back ground and I couldn't get it to fit quite how I wanted. Hopefully when it's finished it will look ok (fingers crossed Lol!

    Squishy you had me at dragon:D

    Looks good with adding the smoke it will take away the sticker look, Also think about adding a faded neck to it to make it look more like it is coming up from the bottom of the bike.
    Just a thought ...:D

    Lol, gotta love dragons! Great minds think alike Herb, it is having a neck, but going towards the back of the tank, as if it's stretched out, to fill that space and make it look like it's not just hanging in mid air lol! I'm feeling out of my comfort zone as the few bits of colour I've done have mostly been on paper, apart from the skullfire bike. It's making me nervous, and second guess myself all the time, but that's why I'm making myself do it. Gotta keep pressing on!

    Yep gotta love dragons, and someday I may have to try one out, maybe something a bit simpler.

    Loving the tank.

    Thanks everyone. Unfortunately the gods decided to drop something on it (no one around just fell off a shelf) and knock a big chip of paint off, right through to the undercoat. Not fixable so the whole thing has to be stripped. Gutted is an understatement, but just have to take a deep breath, and start again. At the moment I am singing, "....I get knocked down, but I get up again, you're never gonna keep me down....", through gritted teeth admittedly Lol, but I am singing it

    That just sucks! Just look at it this way. Was there anything you didn't like about it, if so get it this time.
