this is a commission I've been working on in the past few days and it went okay, up to the point where I had to start shading and highlighting the dragon.
I've never been very good with light and shade, is there a good way I can train it? Obviously we have lamps over here so I can direct light at, for example, my hand and see how it works, but "fictional" light sources still prove to be very difficult for me (think magic, strange colours, multiple colours).
Either way, I feel like I'm stuck. The more I try to work on it, the more it frustrates me because it just won't look right. Advise, critique and especially paintovers would be greatly appreciated!
