I'm grumpy about the fact that the big moon is not round in the slightest. >.<
So I finally finished this thing.
asked me to do it for my 10.000 kiriban. She gave me this sketch [link]
and wanted to see what I would do with such a design. So here it is.
Drew it absentmindedly at school a few weeks back in black ballpoint. Then filled in the dragon with black ink, which looked pretty cool, so I did the background in black ink as well. Added some red ink at the very end, so the picture would pop out of the screen a little.
But halfway through, something terrible happened. I was inking happily, then went to bed and let it dry, only to discover that one of the pieces of tape hadn't managed to stick, so the paper was a bit wrinkled. Not all that much, but it still bothers me.
There were a few digital tough-ups in Gimp. I added a darker gradient to the sky. Also, originally the dragon and the thorn bushes weren't illuminated by the red light, but I thought about it and decided it would look better if they were, so I added that digitally too.
So here you are. I hope you like it ^^ It's the first decent background I've done in a while. Certainly with traditional media.
