I was frustrated with having an empty Journal so for the time being I think I'll try to log the creation of an image I'm working on. I would also like to get used to some of deviant art's system, this should help. The image that I'm creating is inspired by this image;
=== Day 1 ===
There is am image I made recently in which I used a technique that I've never used before. I drew the outline as fills instead of as strokes in inkscape and I have to say the image ended up not looking bad at all;
This meant that I could use this image to achieve the same effect as that shown in the first thumb. The first thing I did was strip down the derpy image shown above until it was just the outline. I then printed off the image an sketched wings on to it;
Then I drew the wings in inkscape;
And that's where I'm at at this point.
Well I continued working on this for a bit and now I've got what will probably be the base for the final image;
I still need to do tons of work on the wings but I think that it'll look nice once it's done.
=== Day 2 ===
So here is where I've got to, there is still a lot of work before it's finished but I've now done the first wing properly and changed the hair.
Looks like I'm done with this;
If I were going to change it, I would make the wing lines thicker.
The hardest part of doing this was the wings they took such a long time .
