Orange and Blue by SoulSpade Orange and Blue by SoulSpade
So this is my first drawing using Sai, though I only used it for the sketching and line-art. The coloring and background I did in Photoshop. I'm both proud and a little disappointed with this one XD I loved how the lines were coming out, but things seemed to go down hill as went to add color (at that point, I was just really wanting to finish the thing).

I also used this drawing as an opportunity to practice feathered wings, which I really want to learn how to do better in detail. It's gonna take more practice before I get to what I'm ideally shooting for.

Anyway, hope you guys like this all the same c:

EDIT It is now, not so blue, but instead more orange. Orange and Blue. I think they complement one another.

Glad your liking sai, I went from photoshop to sai and was deffinately a different experience. After a little while this stuff will become second nature. Nice picture!

This is beautiful. However, I do agree with mickmarona about the sky being orange.

I'm considering going ahead and seeing about replacing this with an orange sky variation, or at least uploading it as a separate version. It seems I went overboard with the blue XD

SPADE! Long time no see! :hug:

That is, indeed, allot of blue. But it's my favorite color, so no complaints here. I'd say this looks great to me. I love the sinuous flow of the body and muscle definition. The wings look pretty good at well. :)

May have been better to make the sky orange or something; the blue on blue makes everything blend in.

True, there's more blue here than what was probably good for it :/ I didn't really give the colors the attention they needed. I was really just testing out Sai, and when I got the lines done, I sorta just quickly splashed on colors. I'll know to do better next time around
