July Update

Hello, I've decided that in the end of each month I'll update the artblog with what I've accomplished.

I am going to make a banner for my two other blogs, Choose your Shit and Sirkusdyret.

Now over to the Art works:
Red Rain

Red Rain, is a gift for my friend Max aka Metalwolfgemstone!, the top cat is his charactere Deltaclaw, while Clay the lower cat is his friends character.

I started this by pencil, sketching and finding videos and pictures of cat's fighting it took a while, but I think the cats turned out pretty nice. I was aiming for a full picture, not just a plain blue or gray background so, I had to think of the background aswell, I started looking at tutorials and pictures of skies and other nature looking features. This was the tutorial I used for the sky.

The sky could have been better, but I guess I got tired of gray I must say that I LOVE the ligthening effects. The same with the ground, it has no detailes, but still it goes well with the picture in my opinion.
Totaly easy made waterpuddles, most likely the easies I did, except the rain.

So there you have RED RAIN.


Girafarig was just started as a doodle, but later on I used a pen, and lined him up, and I decided to look through my drawer for pencils to color him up with, and I found the aquarell water pencils, which worked nice, and made a cool effect on the paper. I did not use Photoshop on this in any way.
There wasn't orange, pink or dark brown, so I had to combine some of the colors, for the orange I used the lightest shade of red with yellow, and pink I used the darker shade of red with purple, the dark brown was so easy, black and brown, but that was the one I had most dificulities spreading over the paper.

See all my artwork on my deviantart!

That's all for July, see you in August <3
