    I had someone contact me and ask if I could paint a dragon, they provided a reference picture they had found.

    Wasn't entirely sure about it but had a bit of a bash, came out OK I think. Even managed to get a reasonable gun finish on the clearcoat (or at least better than my last attempt :laugh: )

    Nice one Alex, it came out looking pretty good. I watched the vid last night I think, the days are a bit of a blur at the moment. The clear is looking better, just like airbrushing, the more you do it the better you will get.

    Looks good. Hats off to you for doing that. I'm still a girl's blouse when it comes to stuff like that.

    I reckon you would do a super Dragon if you did one.

    Thanks,the advice from Nick was spot on, once I moved closer and went quicker things improved no end, the gun I'm putting the clear on with only cost me £12 too :thumbsup:

    lol It was a birthday present for her (grown up) daughter.

    Good news is she's requested two more works as Christmas presents.

    My wife does various private healthcare treatments from our house and it's paying off having bits and pieces I've painted on display in the room. Have to be a little selective though, a lot of her patients are elderly and my picture of Death with his scythe was not allowed to be hung there :oops:
