The servers were down for maintenance today and I found myself with free time and no WoW to play. I was a bit lost at first. I've been pushing to level my hunter because I want a lightening worg before the Vale is destroyed. That and running lfr on Tyle was all I really had planned for today. So much for that. So I decided it's about time I stopped letting photoshop intimidate me and try to color something. I love using photoshop for manulating images but for coloring? Give me a box of crayons! So then I had to figure out what to color and I figured I'd draw my dk. I didn't want to try anything to realistic and I didn't want to spend forever drawing when what I really wanted was to color. I've got a good start and I really want to show it. I could use any comments you might have. The face is the most done part and the skirt and hands are the least. I figured I'd post it and try to show some progress as I keep working on it. If nothing else it will be fasinating for me to see how it evolves. And be gentle. I'm still learning and I was using a mouse since I couldn't get my tablet to work. Actually I'm pretty happy with it. I am surprised the lines don't look more wobbly then they do. And I'm blabbing. But I'm anxious. I don't think of myself as an artist. I'm not usually drawn to drawing stuff but when I do I try hard to make stuff look good. Usually my expectations are higher then my ability. This time I told myself I don't care about accuracy. I just want recognizable. Although... shadows... hmm... but I think she looks pretty sassy. I was surprised how well it all came though. I have trouble getting emotions on faces and I keep thinking she needs a nose... I'll stop. I could keep going forever. Anyway... hopefully soon I'll get some more work done on it.
