From this point forward its almost all direct painting on a single layer. After working for a bit I noticed that the skin tone was leaning too far towards green. I wanted a more elephant-like chromatic grey so I dialed back the saturation across all of the skin. I’ve started on the fur texture of his garb as well which I think will be a long process of many layers to get the variation in tones that I’m looking for. Finally I got some photo reference for the feathers that hang from the head of the sphere so that I can get a more accurate shape and color on them.
