Shop Notes: 2023-02-07 - Red

Tonight I added some red tones to the dragon figure I've been working on for over a month now.  I used an air brush to lightly add some Vallejo Air Red and Light Red paints to the entire dragon.  I sprayed it lightly so the brown I put on last time would still show through underneath, giving that multi-tone effect.   

It seems to be going pretty not that bad.  Most models at this stage of painting tend to look rather bad.  The magic seems to come in the follow up steps where washes and dry brushing helps bring out the details and make them pop.    The head, especially, needs some detail work.  However I think this is a decent start.... maybe.
