...Zel's discovered digital colouring...be afraid...be very afraid...
My first ever computer coloured piece.
This is by no means finished, but I'm not going to be able to work on it over the Christmas period, so figured that I'd put it here as it stands for now...because I'm pretty happy,
Still have to add a background, I just blacked it out here because on the white background that's presently in OpenCanvas...all of the detail disappears. That's why the edges are all rather rough at the moment, the black was done just so you can see the actual drawing. Wings still need to be properly shaded in too. (left wing still needs to be added at all for that matter!).
Given that I'd never coloured anything on the computer before, I'm pretty happy with how this came out.
Somewhat of a challenge as a first attempt though...black is a hard colour to work with! Actually a very, very, very dark blue as you can see - but for all intent and purpose, if you were to ask someone what colour my hide was, you'd be told black.
Much to be done still, and I'm open to all feedback and advice...happy with it as a starting point though.
Mwhaha...knew I got that graphics tablet for something...
Original sketch hand drawn, colour done in OpenCanvas using an archaic Aiptek tablet of unknown model.
