my version looks a bit smooshed, like he might be moving speedily along. this is unfortunate since i imagine the bahamut to be a rather lazy, slow moving fellow.
i did a freehand sketch with a #2 pencil while looking at my laptop. after the pencil sketch, i used a pilot precise v5 pen to trace over the pencil and then erased the pencil. i followed up with some watercolor. the whole process took about 2 hours from start to finish.
original painting is done by marina korenfeld
by hans op de beeck

the full video is a bit longer, the artist’s site is here.
first heard about JR through this article.
i love the scale and the message of his work.
