I've been working on my entry for J. Scott Campbell's interview and contest over at sketchoholic.com, ever since my holiday started this friday, and now it's done. At first I couldn't really decide whether or not to even enter, because the theme was a tricky one: "sexy fairy tale character". The challenge would do me good, I thought, as it is miles away from what I usually do. I would have to really study anatomy to make it work and also read up on a few fairytales. I chose to do a fairy godmother because you don't see too many of those around.
Having settled on an idea, I ran into the next obstacle: should I paint or draw or both? I knew I needed to practice linework so drawing it would be ideal and the other day I figured out how to do line separation in Painter, so lines it was. I think I drew it three times before it came out right.
Tried something new for coloring, especially where the shadows are concerned. Hope you like it :D
