Here we go, I finished this piece at last. I started this before I did the Terra Nova piece and finished this after it so I don't think the colouring in this one does me justice. It looks like I burn-tooled the shit out of it at parts. The fact that colours on my laptop screen are way more desaturated than on a proper monitor doesn't make things easier. So I ran between my laptop and my girlfriends computer to see if the colours were as properly saturated as I could make them with this piece. Still, not too happy with the colouring but I learned some stuff from doing this drawing, jumping to the Terra Nova piece and then back to this. Made me realize a lot of things about colouring and about creating basic forms before putting in detail in a picture.
Oh and I just noticed that some of the shadows are falling way off from the light source HNNNNG.
"Never give up. Almost nothing works the first time it's attempted. Just because what you're doing does not seem to be working, doesn't mean it won't work. It just means that it might not work the way you're doing it. If it was easy, everyone would be doing it, and you wouldn't have an opportunity." - Bob Parsons
