Andromalius: 72 of 72 by Sketchbookuniverse Andromalius: 72 of 72 by Sketchbookuniverse
I've made a start on my personal project, let me know what you think...71 to go ✍️️

The Seventy-second Spirit in Order is named Andromalius. He is an Earl, Great and Mighty, appearing in the Form of a Man holding a Great Serpent in his Hand. His Office is to bring back both a Thief, and the Goods which be stolen; and to discover all Wickedness, and Underhand Dealing; and to punish all Thieves and other Wicked People and also to discover Treasures that be Hid. He ruleth over 36 Legions of Spirits. His Seal is this, the which wear thou as aforesaid, etc.
-The Lesser Key of Solomon

Wow, this is awesome! And I totally agree with W-H-E-A-T that the snake skin texture is spot on!! I recently tackled a (very small!) snake and that was the hardest part for me (the scales). May I ask your method?

Thanks, It was quite easy! You need two layers, a cusom brush and a scale reference photo. 
1. Paint in your snake shape
2. Get a photo of some snakeskin and crop a section to make a custom brush.
3. Paint the custom scale in over your original snake shape with a darker colour, then erase and transform to fit the angles correctly. 
4. Then paint the highlights in on the bottom layer to show under your custom texture. 
hope this helps :)

I'm loving this design. That snake is bloody awesome! The "roughness" of the painting also fits the theme pretty well. Bravo!

Thank you very much. I rushed it a little towards the end to finish it off, it may need a final detail at some point. I've got loads of these to do though I'm going in reverse order and I've only just finished No. 71 :D
