WIP for an untitled piece

This piece has been in development hell for some time now. I really like the core idea, but I can’t seem to resolve the pose and there are a few other minor issues. Hopefully I can address everything and put this piece to bed, since I’d really like to see how the finished version matches the image in my head…

#1 headshot

I will discuss the piece in depth once the release version is completed, but I suppose it is okay to tell you that the work is inspired somewhat by Journey to the West, although it doesn't actually feature any of the characters from that epic tale (it just seems like my creatures could've come from there)

I should also mention this isn't the piece at all, but a headshot of the rider. You can view the actual composition on the following images...
