Wyvern Shading Progress

The Wyvern:

Originally sent from my windows phone, but the text didn’t come with it. I decided to add the other images, too.

I’ve had three sessions with the wyvern. I have just the back end to do and then probably another session to finish it off. I thought I had cross-hatching to do, but that was only if I didn’t have powdered graphite for the background. I have done some on the cliff to give it texture. The cliff will need a lot more layers to make it black enough.

Thanks for looking.


I started blogging in an effort to keep the old brain cells alive. I'm writing a fantasy series, I take more MOOCs than I can handle, and am trying to get my Nikon D3000 off auto. I live in Victoria, Australia, with my husband and our dog, Vika.

  1. Looking good, so what were you worrying about. I chap I worked with was a daughtsman and he always kept talc handy to dust his hands with if they were getting a bit oily or sweaty

    1. Yeah, the talc is a good idea. I just made this pic larger and added the text which didn’t come through using the phone. I’m pleased with how it is coming along, Sue. Thanks for looking.


Tell me what you're thinking.
