And he was never alone, 
surrounded by scales,
by serpentine loved ones.

A quick doodle before I get to work this morning.

Just a progress post/practice painting.
We will see how far I get on this one,
So far it turns out; pretty irish.
Been studying Aaron Blaise to some degree.
It's fascinating that one person can be apt at so many forms of art.
Maybe that's what I'm aiming for...

This was made with TVpaint Animation.
I only have the most glowing and positive things to say about the program and urge any animators interested in traditional 2d approaches to check out the free demo as soon as you get an opportunity.
I'm very excited to be working with it on the whole, and will continue to post my thoughts and insights into the program as I learn of it's features, and respectively utilize them.
