Just a quick exercise in working with color. Maybe 3 hours or so. There's something corrupting about coloring your own lineart, mostly cause I'm a super-critical artist about my own work and look for mistakes. And I was very impressed with the lineart Frisket had done of her Lunar fan character, the dragon Lunix, which she said she wasn't going to color. So behold. Frisket is also evil because she can get her lines microscopic thin. I would kill do have lines like hers. I'm pretty certain she uses pencils, tho, which are very evil to me. I do so love the transparency, however. I need a tutorial on working with pencil or something ... or at least a kickass line cleanup tutorial. My scanner's pencil lines are always super ragged, whereas when I just copied Frisket's image into Photoshop they were very smooth. Also, this was colored using %100 opacity, no master opacity or flow settings. So yay!
I'm kind of hoping this won't come back to bite me on the ass. All you Frisket fans out there (and I know your names are legion), have the heart to at least peruse my gallery. Know what my most popular piece is? The comic cover I did for Kay Fedewa's Blackblood Chronicles. You don't have to leave a comment or even fave, but it is rather humbling to realize one's most popular work is pretty much someone else's. I will probably move this into scraps in a little bit, mostly cause I want an unbroken line of my Daemon Soul concept art in my gallery (I am so anal), and because Frisket suffers a lot of art theft and this one could be pretty ripe for thieves. And of course, if she wants me to take it down, I shall.
