I'm almost done color scheming for this. I have no idea what colors to use for the black head though. I don't have a lot of blacks/black like colors currently. Also, trying to figure out a good color for the belly scales and back spines. 

 

Looks like it's time to consult the Google machine.

I've got most of the body base coated. I've also base coated the red and green heads. I used black green as a base for my green head and it is much darker once dried, I think I can work with it though. I'm really not sure how to handle the black head though. If any one has tips on that I'll take what I can get.

A couple of tips I got from Corporea are to keep 75% of your black areas black (so it doesn't look gray from too much highlighting), and alo to use a very dark blue or purple (or even green) in the shaded areas, since oddly those read as more black than straight black. :) 

 

I'm excited to see how your baby Ma'al turns out! ^_^

 

Huzzah!

Got the heads based. Pretty impressed with the Bones Dragon White, good coverage for only two coats. Need to bring the green head up a lot, too dark currently.

The Bones Dragon White is a really crisp white, and brighter than the Pure White I think. Lately Scale 75's Purity White has been my favorite white though. It is silky smooth on the brush and thins like a dream. Haven't used it for base coating, however.

Really coming along nicely. Might have to pick up a second hydra to do this with.

Got the tops of the wing membranes based, going to try to fade from a bright red to a black.

Back at it. Still layering up red on the wings, should've put a little less blue liner or a more thinned liner on the wings. Getting this as bright as I want it is turning out to be a slow process.

Green head mostly done. Trying to get the red, blue, and green heads done first since they are harder to get at.

Watching your progress makes it very tempting to make a metal copy using 14445 and 14417 since I love the metal in general!

 

But $100 is a lot !!! Lol
