I don't know how many of you out there ever explore painting or drawing in 2D but I find it a nice way to develop some methods of highlighting and shading. This fire warrior was done in oil pastels. The pastels I have are basically advanced crayons. You can't get much detail or fine lines at this scale, but the basic highlighting and shading work is similar to painting figs.
I tried to work in some purples and yellows into the piece but I tried to stick with an orange and blue color scheme.
Well it was just for fun.
Hope you like it and get some inspiration from it.
