I hereby christen the water dragon "Colgate" on account of the fact that my boyfriend says he looks like blue gel toothpaste.

Neirenn from Inverloch [link]

5 ~ 6 hours, PS CS4

Edit: I should have mentioned that this is a redesign of the character, so there's no real sense in telling me 'it doesn't look like her' or 'her hair is the wrong colour' because they are my characters and I have every right to give them overhauls them if I wish ;)

where can I read Inverloch?

Just finished re-reading Inverloch. It was my first web comic way back when I was in middle school... wow... now I feel old! XD But it was so great getting to re-read it and seeing all the hints dropped along the way. :) Also, besides being proud about that comic, be proud in knowing you're the reason I now read 80+ web comics, you helped me find a whole new reading medium. :D

Brilliant ... Haven't seen the original character ... LOOKS GREAT!
Do you have anything sketched on iPad maybe using Sketchbook Pro? I'm looking for inspiration to persevere as I learn techniques from great artists such as yourself.

So exciting! I really LOVED Inverloch, it was such a sad day when it was over.
Any plans to revisit the other characters?

IDK if you actually reply to any comments, but if you do, do yo uhave any tips for drawing/painting/digitally creating water? Tips that a begginer could use please!
artsangel's avatar
Ah... would be too hard to do that in text, I'm afraid. The best I can say is to find photographs of water and reflections and study them carefully, and paint duplicates.
indigocean's avatar
Hmm, sounds good. :)

Amaaazing texture on the dragon. :love:

Also the hand! I love the way you've used blue to make the skin realistic. Looking at my own hand now, it's sort of freaky how clearly I can see the veins, and you've captured that x)
