    I've spent so much time working with fire I thought I'd forgotten how to paint anything else.
    If I'd have known it was going to look this good I would have photographed the previous stages (3).
    Still have to work the leathers and the white facial areas but I'm not happy how the airbrush is running so it's cleaning time.

    Thanks Shawnavin. I use an Artograph super prism image projector and colored pencils to map out my areas. This works for me as no detail is lost. Anything in an 18" × 18" area can be enlarged 1:1 upto 20:1.
