Am I done yet? No, but check that lizard out. I had no idea what I was doing but 2hrs of fiddling and it's finally looking okay. I wanted to post this all as one work in progress, but I am honestly sick of waiting to get it complete. All that is left is the cake, flower, cast shadow and I'll be done. I hate how the dress looks so flat because the bearded dragon is so textured, but I don't know what I can do about it.
Right now I just need to stop looking at it.

Ooops, that last one is sideways, but you get the idea.
Anyways! This is my last character from my set of three watercolours. I had him done for a while there, but I just remembered to actually get the photo from my camera. Isn't he lovely. Cameras really mess up any chance at all of getting the colours to look like they do in real life. He turned out a little flat when I painted him, but there is no undo button so hopefully I can get it better next time. =]

There is one little step missing in between the last and second last image and I dont have it because it was literally a rough brush over on the final layer that I then cleaned up here and there in the important parts. I liked the large brush strokes and randomness of a lot of the black sections and I didn't want to loose them by starting a whole new layer again. Anyways, so first was just a thumbnail and I did 3 of them then asked around for ideas, tweaked and blew it up to full size. Moved forward from there.
