Mountains and dragon

Been working on my landscape pic a bit. I tinkered with the background mountains, finally had to eyedropper colors from the original photo. I felt like such a failure, but I just couldn’t eyeball the color. I kept making it too green. Turns out it’s grey-blue and dark gray-blue.

Here’s a closeup of the dragon.

I’m really enjoying painting from a model. It makes the shading so much easier! I put a guy on his back so the dragon’s look wouldn’t be so threatening. It goes from “Rawr I’m going to eat the kid” to “Oh noes we’ve been discovered!”
