I was sorting some files on my hard drive and came across an abandoned project. “The Fire Serpent” was a planned character for my friend’s mobile collectible card game. Unfortunately the project had to be postponed, but I hope it can get rebooted in some way.
I only got so far with just doing the line art and blocking in solid colours. I wanted to test some texture brushes to give the serpent a rock like skin formation. The scale back lie you see on dragons, I wanted it be flames flicking off embers. The only thing I would change back then would be the thickness of the line art. It was just too bold and thick. Overall I was pleased with the results. Especially on the highlighted cracks in the skin near the flaming scales.
