@KC Thanks, I am not much of a concept artist so I like the ones from people that are good, I will be more careful when using other people's. I didn't think it was a problem.
@Senka Thank you. The horns probably took me the longest, glad you like them. Also, I did notice that my noise was a bit low res when applied to the tongues among other things. I will make sure this all gets done by the time "final" comes around.
So, I have been playing around with the polypainting and this is what I have so far. I also rendered a glossy render pass to compose in Photoshop. If anyone has an expert opinion or tips on how to do this effectively please, by all means. I saw this method somewhere but I can't remember where.
