Practice practice practice practice practice practice. Two days (between cooking and playing with animals). All I could afford in busy work schedule. It was pretty much my 'weekend'.
I looked at some ref for the top two speed paintings. The rest is just brainspew.
LET ME EXPLAIN THE SOCK. I was drawing this dragon person and I didn't *really* want to castrate him but decided to spare the squeamish. I then recalled a story a friend told about driving around the country and seeing what she took to be a naked man on his riding mower. Upon closer inspection she found that he was NOT naked, but wearing a sock.
So, chortling to myself, I gave my fellow a sock. Could also be appropriated from Red Hot Chili Peppers.
Back to work now. :F
