The Lost Little Dragon

I was 'secretly' taking a class through the summer to refresh my polishing skills on digital painting. I sketch quite a bit, but was a little out-of-practice and needed a review of the basics anyway! I found my 'flow' when I did these thumbs:
I chose the ocean one, cause I love the ocean.

The Angel Michael.

At least, how I kind of imagined him. Kind of a "Heavenly Badass".
Bigger. Maybe better? This (and the post before) is an illustration for an upcoming book by James A. Beane about the 3D production process. He's quite knowledgable, so it should be good!
