IF : Tales and Legends

Posted on Tuesday, January 29th, 2008 under Sketches | No comments


My submission into this week’s Illustration Friday theme of “Tales and Legends”.

I originally had planned to create this just in Art Rage, as a fun experiment with the new version of the app, but it quickly deteriorated, as I realized I don’t like Art Rage.

It is strong in some areas, and feels much like what use to be Alias’ Sketchbook, but for some reason, the blending and colors and brushes weren’t working for me. Something about lacking precision. I don’t know. I have Corel Painter back on my Mac now, so I will give that a go next. Let’s hope for some better results.

If you want to see the partial colored version I posted, just check out the alternate on Flickr.
