Colour & Water-Based Media assignment. Emphasis on warm/cool and light/dark value contrasts, complementary colours.

*BTW If it's of any interest I just remembered something about my process on this - I had actually meant to draw his eyes and the scales on his belly in correct perspective, unlike these flat ones that create the illusion of him leaning much more on his side than he's really supposed to be, but then I realized how much more difficult that is to paint without messy "line leakage", so I cheated it. Goes to show how mixing mediums at which one's skill levels differ from one to the other can have technical and even creative consequences. Anyway, I got a good mark. It wasn't about the drawing. I still kinda like it.
