|Rhaegal, one of three dragons belonging to Daenerys Targaryen|
Rhaegal easily chose itself as the dragon of choice to be painted out of the three dragons associated with Daenerys Targaryen - the other two being Drogon (black with red markings) and Viserion (creamy white with gold markings). Described as having largely green scales with bronze markings made Rhaegal as the most suitable, in terms of colour combination, to be placed on top of her light turquoise blue sleeves. To me at least, it made for a more harmonious (yin and yang) pairing.
|A green dragon made sense when paired with her clothes overall colour scheme|
|Orange/bronze markings in the folds of the dragons wings are what defines it as Rhaegal|
|Greens had an olive and lime vibe to them, if colours were food that is|
It's only now that the light pastel colours on Daenerys Targaryen's clothes begin to make sense and starts to take a life of its own. I am hoping that when clothing accessories and skin tones are applied, her clothes will start to look even better as every colour is characterised by the hue(s) next to it.
|Sculpted curves on her body contrasts well against the jagged edges of the dragon wings|
|Best angle to view the contrast in colours between dragon and clothes|
|Details on the dragon were well sculpted|
|Darker green hues on the inside folds of the dragon's wings|
Taken as a whole, I am very happy with how the girl and dragon is coming along. It wasn't easy to stick to my own convictions during the initial stages as I was constantly plagued with doubts as to whether I had made the right choice in choosing light pastel colours. The urge to darken and increase contrast was overwhelming and remains so even now. As mentioned earlier, I retain hope that when more work is done on the skin and clothing accessories, my choice will be further justified.

|Clothing accessories have yet to be painted ... still waiting for inspiration to hit me|
|Side view gives a snapshot of the main colours used so far|
|Contrast within the clothes were less stark than on the dragon's skin|
Work on both the clothes and dragon is not wholly complete as I am still open to future modifications as and when other parts are painted. Not all outcomes can be fully anticipated which is what makes art so much fun. Sometimes you end up somewhere you never intended to go to in the first place. Everything is still pretty much how I expected it to turn out but I am always wary of the unexpected.
|Work-in-progress, Nocturna Models Enchantment (back view)|
|Painting of the Nocturna Models Enchantment figure remains a long way from completion|
|Appreciation of how well sculpted this figurine is grows with each painting session|
There is still a long way to go before the paint work for the Nocturna Models Enchantment miniature is finished. Currently, I would place it at around 50% completed. I am going to take my own sweet time with her as the high quality of this sculpture demands it. I hope you will continue to join me as further progress is made on my interpretation of Daenerys Targaryen of the Game of Thrones series.
