Gradius III

I started drawing Gradius III Fire Dragon Boss. I'm told this is not an arcade boss, but the SNES version. Hopefully that's okay cuz the winged version wasn't as appealing to me. When I'm done with this one I'm doing the Moai Totem Poll Boss. Hopefully that one is from an arcade cuz I'm drawing up a storm for NWPAS.

I'm using colored pencil and paint thinner on this. Thanks to a lady at Ben Franklin for that hint! Beside the drawing are my pics of inspiration.

Here's my sketch of my future Moai Totem Poll:  

 I don't know how to make up the shadow on the right side yet hmmmm. I'm going to do each Moai and their bodies as best as I can, very much unlike the game which is just one head over and over.

 Here's my progress today. I am wondering what to do about the background. In the game it's black. Maybe I'll do that with stars and the dragon glowing with loose embers.
