So, I brought my  5 year old daughter with me to the miniature store.  She has been interested in my miniatures for about two years now, but I have yet to let her touch anything.  She insisted that she wanted to try her hand at painting... so, at $14.99 and pre-primed how could I go wrong.  She chose the Young Fire Dragon from the D&D line.  We took it home and she helped to do all the base coating.  Now time to actually get to work... I guess I am going to be a dragon painter now.

This is the direction I am thinking to go... took about 10 minutes this morning to do the neck and face in red.

Haven't had a lot of time this week for painting, so with the little bits of 20 min sessions I have had this is what I have gotten done.  Look at the lower portion of the wing, that is the direction I think I want to go?  Need to clean it up a little bit where the black wash encountered the lighter yellow.
 
Other than that, more scale highlighting and hit the mane.  Thoughts on the mane?  I might go back in and do some more subtle red mixed in to the mane?

Finished this side, for the most part.  Now, the belly, details in the face, and finish up the wings.... it is coming along nicely for only getting about 10-15 minutes of attention each paint session.

@SkullKrusher:  Thank you very much!  Now we have to do the other side!

 

Update time!  Got the underside of the wing done, though I may go back and hit it with a bit of lining next to the wing membrane.  Sealed the underside of the wing and the finished side of the body with some dull coat, want to be sure I don't jack up the paint job once I start working on the other side.  What do you think?
