Steve.sykes: Ah man, so cool. Crazy looking scales. Thanks for the ref! Will definitely try to incorporate that into a dragon idea sometime.

Here's a few more daily dragons. A swamp dragon, volcanic tunnel dragon, and another shot at the snowy mountain dragon. All took somewhere between 3-4 hours or so. Feel like I'm learning a bit with each one.

Hey Sam, i like the devotion! Hey, do you allow crits in your sketchbook? I don't want to be that guy who just throws out random crits.

Hope all is well,

Crits are always welcome.

Yo Sam, glad you are open to crits.

What I'd do differently if I were you is to see that good values is the result of understanding the context of the lightness and darkness in the image. Here's what I mean:

Sargent considered value the greatest importance of a painting but he understood that good values are the result of a good design/structure to build off of. Good values is the result of understanding structure and then draping light over the forms (but simultaneously making conscious decisions about value grouping and composition {which are also things that are prerequisites for good values.. as good values are understood as something ultimately within a whole composition and is very relative...}

Your speed and efficiency at painting good values will improve much quicker if you pursue understanding structure and design more. Hope this makes sense to you as going down the road of thinking-that-good-values-is-the-result-of-just-thinking-about-rendering is a very, very frustrating road to take.

Best,
Jmob

Sam you're totally slaying it man. I also really dig how thorough all of your study sheets are.

So glad I stumbled on your twitch channel and learned about this forum.
