This one was an interesting piece to work on!
I had been requested to reinvision/adapt/update/tweak an existing character with pretty much free reign on what I could do with the character, so I took a formerly fully-scaled wyvern and poomfed him up with a coat of feathers, a new set of headgear, some fin adjustments, and a new coat of 'paint' following similar schematics of the original incarnations.
It was interesting working with cast-lights from multiple sources known for throwing strongly-colored reflection light, and using that in an attempt to portray the general reflectiveness of the scales and feathers; plus remembering ambient cast lighting on fellow scenic items.
Rivers/creaks/streams/brooks are.. interesting bodies of water to attempt replicating, as they all look differently depending on angle, time of day, and weather/seasonal conditions. I'll eventually figure out an easier way to render them more effectively than I tried here. Same for my trees.. Trees are... hmm, yeah... Trees...
Liking the water shadows though, and the little blue cast light on the rocks under the trees :>
