Ignition, Dentist Calling, Peek-A-Boo, or Snack Attack... ?
Haven't done any new stuff for a while but the release of Fineline and discovering Procreate brought life back to my old ipad and I was eager to try this out. Never owned a Cintiq, so painting direct on glass took a bit of getting used to, and now I'm considering the new 27QHD - pricey tho, need to start saving for it.
This piece was a lot more of experimenting on techniques, brushes and effects/textures, especially trying to avoid muddying, add on colors and no dodge/burn like in photoshop. Wanted to do a more painterly effect initially but at some point swapped to a soft brush instead and ended up doing a lot more post color adjustments than originally intended.
Composition is meant to be simple - imagining a knight stumbling into a cave and got surprised by a dragon - single light source. Tested with a couple of backgrounds but was too distracting so opted to omit some of it, I may go back to it at some point but am happy to leave it as is for now.
