This is a ten minute timelapse video of an artist painting a realistic dragon head. Not to brag or anything, but all the work done prior to the ten second mark (seen above, top) looks about on my level. "It's a blobby outline of a dragon head." Stop embarrassing me, I just said I wasn't trying to brag! Am I red in the face now? "Only because I just watched you put blush on." Kiss me you fool.
Keep going for the video.
Thanks to The Great Grant, who agrees the key to painting a realistic dragon portrait is finding a dragon willing to sit still long enough.
