Visitor to the Yard
Almost done with the petals. I forgot the direction the light was supposed to be coming from so some petals look a little odd :p Once the whole piece is finished I will go back and add more tonal value to it. And try to correct the mess up :p
Once the dragon is done, the rest will be easy. Just a basic crumbling stone texture with lots of cracks and moss growing on it. I should have laid down a few layers of Neocolours down for the stone before I started the dragon. Would have helped with the texture.
And we had a visitor to the front yard. One I really hadn't thought we would have.
Was rooting around by the bird feeder. I had never seen one in the wild, and I am assuming this is a wild one. The aren't kept as pets here like they are in North America. I always wanted one. And I didn't get close to it, didn't want to startle it. It scurried away after about 10 minutes into the rose hedge. They can move pretty fast lol The neighbours saw a squirrel, which is odd for the area. So maybe its a good sign some animals are adapting (and don't get me started on how they shouldn't have to).
