I looked at my old sketch, and decided it was too stiff and overworked. So I sketched out something a little more appealing to me.
Not so stiff now! The other griffin is mine, and they’re playing catch with some sort of leather ball. Or a magic ball. So I can draw sparkles. I’m not sure yet.
Then I dropped in one of Painter’s excessively gradient gradients.
Then I disturbed its perfection with a big fat oil brush. Wet Brush, I believe.
The colors aren’t ones that I’d normally use, but it’s kind of nice painting a sunset in green and orange instead of blue and pink. Makes my brain work harder.
Then I started roughing in the griffins …
…and had to call it a night, since I’d been working on it two hours straight and I was tired.
More coming soon!
