artastic me

So, the fruits of my labor. The flats being by far the most time consuming bit of this piece. This is for Ben Coon who's sketchbook has missed him and endured becoming second best to job hunting and my personal depression...but NO MORE! It is finished! The non yiffy, yet dragon porn Wise asian dragon for your viewing pleasure!

#1 is the inked image, no futzing yet. Not even contrasted.
#2 is the flatted image. Lots of outlining and selecting things. Oy!
#3 is the image with a basic dark blue background.
#4 is after adding 'difference clouds' to give a weird, spacial feel. Like they're floating in space.
#5 is starting to futz with the magical auras of magic. That also took some time.
#6 is glowy stuff!
#7 is weird text futzing and all the dodging and burning to add light and shade. If you can, look at the dragon's eye. It rocks!
#8 is the same background, but adjusting to opacity of the blue background and adding a white layer.
#9 is no lines! OMGd!
#10 is my favorite version. I removed the dark blue layer. It looks all mystical and stuff.
