Ridge by lillilotus Ridge by lillilotus
Here's a massive trial piece! The sketch was done as a practise to improve poses and anatomy, and I was really proud of the hand that I drew (because OMG perspective) so I wanted to do something with it.

It was also a test to see if I could possibly start colouring in photoshop again? I sometimes prefer PS background effects, and it's good for certain things (like space). It's still clunky and I'd never use it for lineart again, but it's kind of forgiven because it did do a pretty star background ^^; I also wanted to experiment with shading techniques and backlights - both of which I think turned out pretty ok (but faces are still the hardest things in the world to shade properly!)

So in the end, it's just one massive test piece that ended up looking decent - and I got to draw Ridge from the Yogscast, so that's cool too. I get the feeling people have him down as the God (since he flies around the servers in creative mode), and I've always got this silly thought about those sort of characters that they could have a galaxy under their coat or something ^^; Stupid thought, I know, but makes for some pretty effects
