a commissioned piece for a friend. this was an exercise in changing the photo reference for the betterment of the painting. the ground was way too light in the photo so i darkened it down and gave it more saturated color. the sky was also very light in the reference so i took it down a little too. i enjoyed using warm and cool grays to model the form of the giant beast. wouldve loved to have seen a figure in the photo so i could judge this guys size relative to a human being.
