Today I did the rest of his base coating, at least on the hide. I went with a lighter green stripe and then an almost white belly. I did a lot of wet blending to ease the transitions between those colors.
I'm liking him so far. Not sure what I'm going to do about shading and highlights, exactly.
Next time, I'll either finish detailing on his hide or detail his face. For his hide, the picture I'm working from has darker stripes across the back. For his face, it'd be doing the eyes and mouth. Maybe his claws as well.
