Another one of these Scanned-In-Pencil-Sketch-Digital-Colour pieces. I start to really like doing these.

The lines are not clean on them but I like that especially, the drawing keeps it's hand-made soul with these strokes but get's brilliant digital colouring as a contrast.


This is Ulysses the Mountain Emperor, he plays a big role in my story about this wing-less dragon species he belongs to (Crowncollar Dragons).

“I have become old my friend… very old…”

Danke. ;)
Was viel ausmacht, ist ein hohes Maß an Kontrast. Man tendiert gern dazu Schattierungen zu hell zu machen, meiner Meinung nach gibts da kein "zu dunkel" lieber den Unterschied zwischen Licht und Schatten etwas offensichtlicher machen anstatt ein "flaches" Image zu riskieren. ;)

kannst du mir sagen wie du die übergänge so gut hinbekommst XD ?

Meinst du von hell auf dunkel? In dem Fall hier hab ich mit Gradients und ganz weichen Brushes gearbeitet. Wenn du da die Opacity auf 20-30% oder weniger stellst und immer wieder über die gleichen Stellen arbeitest bekommst du schön weiche Übergänge hin.
Ist es dann immer noch zu hart kann man mit dem Wischfinger noch etwas nachhelfen ;) besser ist es aber gleich mit ganz weichen Brushes zu arbeiten.

Scanned pencil art is how I got my start and I can't make a drawing to this day without drawing it on paper first. I like how dark and brooding this is. You can tell he's deep in though. Love the reflections of the candles and the fire of course.

Thanks!
The main reason why I make these digital coloured sketch works is because I somehow started to dislike drawing digital outlines but I totally enjoy the colouring process. :XD:
It is a lot faster also.
