My first step was to do a little research in my old D & D Monster Manual to see what color these things were supposed to be.They are described as being rust red to red brown with glowing red eyes and black sooty mouths. So to begin, I painted the body of the dog with Folk Art "Barnyard Red"
I then painted the horn like protuberances on its back and neck with Americana "Buttermilk" Afterwards, I gave the whole thing a wash with Winsor Newton "Peat Brown" ink diluted with some water. When dry, I went back and drybrushed the body with the "Barn Red" again, and then added a little of the "Buttermilk" to the red and gave it a lighter drybrushing to add some light highlights. I also gave the horns some highlighting with the "Buttemilk". I then painted the eyes with GW "Blood Red" and did light highlights on the cheeks below the eyes, and the brows above, to give the impression the eyes were glowing.
