Nidhoeggr Reference Picture

My first piece since getting CS4 PS on my new PC. (apart from a small practice sketch [link] )

A coloured reference picture of my personal version of Nidhöggr from Norse Mythos.

As always character designs are subjects to change, but this is my current design for him.

I've added the colours I used, but mainly I just started with the skin base for the entire piece and added low opacity black on his darker parts and low opacity white on his skeletal parts. (Hightlighting/shading effects)
The highlight colour was used as a low oppacity wash on top of his brown skin and wings.

Smaller version to show wings, along with a simple sketch of the wing anatomy.
