Strange Bird coloured by Scellanis Strange Bird coloured by Scellanis
This is my first attempt at using photoshop, have been partially following :iconthazumi:'s tutorials but I didn't read part 2 and got carried away so its kinda gone wrong from there onwards plus I got my layers messed up.

The pencil version is here: [link]

Ooh, how nice. I love the texture and the detail you put in to it. I'm really impressed! I'm not so sure the blue background goes so well with it, though, but it doesn't take away from the bird too much. Nice job.

Thank you! Actually didn't take very long, may seem like it but all of the time between the WIP and the final was spent sewing a dress not working on the picture...just took a couple of days really. About the same as it would to draw and colour it traditionally.

well I don't know photoshop, but I think this looks great! It is what I would imagine a phoenix to look like.
