Raikou Commission

I did this during the Anime Expo weekend, finally got some time to blog about this!
It's a Raikou, one of the legendary beasts from 2nd gen.  I wanted to try a different method on this piece, simply wanted to see if I can get softer look that blends better in the background (I was going for a cloud / smoke look).  So I used watercolor first, got some light colored layers on the back, and then after it's dried I added the colored pencil for refine and detail.
