A few months ago, I was gifted by a friend called Greg a giant size 66 Vans shoe at his store over in Bournemouth. He said that I could go ahead and paint anything I wanted on it, so i finalised on the idea of designing a wave morphing into a dragon.
Me with Greg at the Vans shoe store in Bournemouth:
I started by coating the shoe in a white primer which allowed me to paint on the fabric easily. I then settled on using Posca Paint Pens as a form of media

Going over pencil markings with Posca:
After completing all Posca, I decided to add a gradient background that went from yellow to red using my airbrush, as this would give a smooth blended effect.
Finalising by airbrushing the background:
