Did the grayscale base shading and highlights - though I’m sure I’ll refine it more later. Lots of blank space between the dragon and golem becaues I’ll add the fire later; I need to do that all in color.
I also threw in a basic gradient for the background and one for the foreground, to give me an idea of the color transition. The colors won’t be exactly like this - rather, this is reference for me to help map out the shift from a general hue to another - blues to greens as the climate changes from tundra to jungle, and so on. The gradients will be gone in the final version.
