Well, I make some quick different shadow sketches, decide on a light direction that works for me and start painting, adjusting and checking my values all the time. The grid effect on the crocodragon's belly took a while to paint, 2-3 hours, because I was looking for a cool motive and redid it a couple of times. I had to mess around with the values on the dragon's right hand because the hookah was very close in value to the hand. I darkened the hand a lot to make sure I got a decent read.
Thanks for the comment!
