This was... fun? While I knew Toohless had some kind of a pattern for a while now I never really looked closer to see it. The fact it's hard to see and only visible under certain lights isn't helpfull at all D: Aku went through both movies muliple times to provide me with enough referencess to paint it XD
First I did a couple of tests just to see how the paint interacted with muliple materials on the sculpture. I loved the dissapearing effect acrylic provided in the end, but turned to be quite bothersome to paint black on black.
Aku wanted Toothless to have relly vibrant eyes as that is the only part on him that can truely stand out an I realised that my first pair were not really cutting it, so I made a few more to test difeerent tecniques. The last ones were also the best ones and so went with those :)04.07.2017
