"My Dragon Eye" - Colored Pencil on Paper

This is a new WIP done in Colored Pencils, based on a beautiful painting made by Christopher Drochen called "The Jade Spring" which is the close up of a leopard's eye which is simply stunning. I wanted to practice technique by copying another artist, yet changing it as well just for fun, so mine will be a dragon's eye in the end, rather than a leopard. 

My boys and I have been watching the Netflix series "Dragon's Race to the Edge," which is everything that happened between "How to Train Your Dragon" 1 & 2, so I have dragons on the brain like crazy! I'm just stuck on what color to make it, so if you have any suggestions, I'd love to hear them!

Oh, and here's Drochon's gorgeous painting (or rather part of it - it's a little bigger but the image is in my book, and I don't want to ruin how beautiful it is by showing the crease...):

It's so pretty, and as you can see I changed it a bit, but definitely have to give him the credit! He's an excellent Painter!!!
