This is my first digital work since getting a new wacom for Christmas last year. I’d originally been using a 4 or 5 year old Bamboo Touch and Pen, then my Mom got this Intuos for me. I was so use to the Bamboo that it didn’t feel right, and the drawing surface was so clean and unscratched… I just sort of fell out of digital drawings from that point. Plus, I found watercolour, which did what I wanted to do in my digital paintings, only traditionally.
Anywho, here’s the reference. I like the style and overall how it turned out! I wanted to play with the orange light but had no reason for it to be there… I was going to add vikings at a bonfire, or dragons or something… meh. I’m happy with it!
Oh! The brushes I used are from Balaskas on dA, here’s the link. Epic brushes… I love the look.
