Fire Dragons

Last week I started some work on my much needed firedragons. With my FW Avatar in mind I tried two different approaches for painting heat/lava effects. On the body I started with a dark red colour (scab red) and from there in used brighter colours (red gore, blazing orange, golden yellow, sunburst yellow - all in different mixtures). On the helmet I used the opposite approach and started with sunburst yellow and darked it to rear.



The effect on the helmet looks more smooth (I think the photo is not doing it justice), but painting the whole Avatar yellow will be a pain.
