I wanted the feeling of just stumbling upon this mysterious creature. The bg was supposed to be autumn maple leaves, but I just couldn't manage to draw them the way I wanted. So...it´s finished for now. Gonna add them when I manage to paint them. :) I do like the firey-like bg that is now. Gives the whole pic a warm feeling. Used a photoref of myself to get the proportions right. (A photo I took myself).
