Final Photoshop Painting in Progress 2

Reference Image for body position.
From the rough outline i began to fill in the body with shading with a soft edge brush considering light and dark areas from a light source which is coming from the left.  Over the top i uses a brush that i made from an image of an armadillo using the colour select tool from a chosen section.

Image used for scales...

Like the head i added tufts of hair emerging through the scales on the arms and feet.

Once i had completed my b+w drawing using the colour overlay i began to add in some colour. The armadillo has brown/ beige tones and i want them to be reflected in my creature. However adding some more beige could give the impression of human skin merged with that of the armadillo, scales imbedded under the skin breaking through.

  1. Looks really nice! I like the fact that you made your hybrid look really feminine
