Eye of Smaug

Here you can see some colour to the big fella.
I have been working the eye, on something this big to spend the time I have getting this to look right, I feel is worthwhile. He needs to look alive and menacing and I am pretty happy that this has been achieved. I applied some purple in the folds around the eye and glazed in some black and blue inks to create the contrast.
I tend to work the deepest details out so the next part is the mouth, then I can properly work the skin on the face and down the neck.

Smaug Update 1

Here we go then, hopefully I have the base finished !!!
There was that much little detail here that I think you can never be 100% sure you have got everything.
I may look to adding some pigments at a later date but for now I am happy to leave this and move on to the big fella himself.
