Dragon Hunters skin and wash WIP

I'm focusing on the foreground and forgetting about everything else for a while. Worked on the human skin tones a bit, tightened a few details as well. I'm not able to get the paint to go lighter the way I'd like, so ended up doing a dark brown wash over parts of the dragon knight to push the depth. I've been doing very short bursts on this image, maybe 30 min to an hour each time. Most of that is humming and hawing over what to do next. Still a long way to go.

One thing I didn't do for myself was to put together photo reference. If I had some nice photos of lighting and materials I might not be struggling as much.
