Nighttime Tracking: Nika by JayAxer Nighttime Tracking: Nika by JayAxer
Nika the lioness is on the hunt during the wee hours of the night.

This was off of the Finale Portfolio thus no further prints will be made of it.

Pencil and ink on typing paper, coloured in Painter IX

Ooh, wouldn't like to meet her on a bad night, she's one badass kitty. Good work with the colouring, it seems to enhance the picture rather than detract from it as night time sometimes does.

What's this? Brush strokes? On a Jay Axer piece?

Finally :p

Hurf durf, indeed.

Not what I was saying, though. It's nice to actually see some of your strokes, rather than the super-polished and rather indecipherable (in a good way) works you usually have. What can I say, I'm a sucker for process :p

Why isn't this about Twilight? Where's Edward!? Make Edward a fox-wolf-badger! Have him listening to a phone call on an N-Gage and eating a Zagnut bar!

I personally think the 4th wing should be zebra striped. Why is that green? I like green and only the colours I like should exist anywhere at all ever.

I really like how you got the muscles so realistic, it's like looking into a book by Burne Hogarth almost. Did you use the realbristle in painter for this? If so, I would very much appriciate if you have any kind of small tips or anything about using it - I'm kinda finding it a bit hard to understand. Sorry to bother you.

Oh sorry, a friend of mine said he thought you used the RealBristle Brushes in Painter. But then I just now saw in a painting progress (Kita) that you stated that you used the round camelhair brush under oils. Gotta find time to try that one out sometime. Sorry for the misstake. :)

The thing I'm really impressed by in this piece is the nighttime effects. I can't do those; it always looks stupid when I try to draw characters at night. I see there are lots of dark blues and purples as shadows... maybe that's part of the technique. Either way your art is as always a pleasure to look at, like a feast for the eyes.

Whoah. Awesome work. Even better than some of your other stuff. I like all your stuff, but this one ... the detail is great. Which is all the harder because of the fact its a scene at night.

Awesome job you did on the hair and muscles' coloring. And I really like how that light comes from the right of the scene as if there were enemies nearby. :+fav:'d!
