sketchy 102


























Well it is fair to say when i started this image i was a little naive in thinking it would be reasonably straight forward! I was very wrong!

I really like this photo as there is a great sense of motion which i thought would carry across when rendered using digital oils.

One thing i tried to do this time round was make better use of blocking of colour to suggest blur - instead of trying to blur a detailed region using the knife tool.

While not as detailed as originally planned, getting those damn swirls working still took time!

The one thing which i am not really happy with is a sense of depth within the fur. The shadowed detail on a furred animal is not really conveyed well at all - next time :)

Time: 2.5 hours
Tools: ArtRage2 - Oils and knife
