Finally got the dragon skin finished



The dragon skin is now painted in subtle green and brown tones.  For some reason, the paint looks better in photos than it does in real life.  Why?  I have no idea.  But it looks pretty good in photos.



The skin texture really helps here, I think.  This is also true of the wings, where the paint has picked up the texture and enhanced it.  Unlike the body, the wing membranes have come out very green with a slight hint of brown underneath.  It's exactly the same paint sloshed all over the sculpt, it's just generated different effects in different areas.  I suspect it has to do with how the underlying material absorbs the paint.




And here's a photo of the whole thing:
