May creature Feature ‘Naga’

by on Jul.23, 2010, under General, Work In Progress

Ok so it’s no longer May, and back then there was a Creature feature at Wet Canvas where artists in the fantasy forum were invited to produce a image of a Naga.  A Naga is a creature from myth and legend. It has a human upper torso with a snake’s body below the waist. I originally sketched out a few quick rough ideas in my sketchbook and came up with a rough drawing. Soon after I drew the composition on canvas, roughed out an underpainting and then got a bit stuck.

As usual I focused on the creature but didn’t have much of a clue regarding what to do for a background. Anyway, over a month later I sat down and started painting and here’s a current work in progress photo. I’m actually quite pleased how this is turning out.
