This is Toothless, a character from the How To Train Your Dragon movie trilogy. I saw this movie in January and have decided to finally take a shot at painting him. It was good practice at painting in mostly one colour. For his body I mainly used paynes grey which has a very blue tone. For the darker sections I added some red and yellow to the paynes grey to make it appear more black. He turned out a little rough, but I think if I painted him again I could make it much smoother.
For the background I used phthalocyanine blue (green shade), adding more water for the light sections. I like this technique for a background. I used plenty of water and then let the paint dry for a natural looking edge. I also used a scrunched up paper towel to dab away some of the paint to give the impression of clouds.
