Dragon Ref. Maquette

The Foil skeleton. I've been adjusting the rocky structures in the final drawing while completing the reference maquette.
A couple different reference shots. I decided to experiment. Instead of using the usual layer of clay I painted gesso straight onto the foil, adding color over that. It was less of a mess and ended up working out fine. The chain mail around the body is a piece of leftover Christmas ribbon I found stashed away. The armor is paper painted gold. It's really rough and definitely not exactly like my drawing but it will serve it's purpose as a reference model. I'll post an image of the final drawing soon. Still have some work to accomplish before the actual painting begins.
