Platypterygius longmani 7

So here's the final rendering and placement of the main figure.

The next step is going to be to modify the coral directly behind the figure. There are traces of the initial figure remaining that need to be obscured and made to fit the current composition. I'll do this using blending tools in Painter.

Next, the color on the ichthyosaur needs to be modified to fit in with the rest of the composition. This, and the rest of the piece, will be done in Photoshop.

Finally, the overall color needs to be made more oceanic and more dense -- the sense of light should be stronger as well. I may experiment with using a Curves adjustment layer for some of this...

Plus? Tonight I get barbecue... Further details to come.
