Blue in the Firelight by TheColclough Blue in the Firelight by TheColclough
The first piece of serious artwork drawn with the Wacom Bamboo tablet my parents gave me for Christmas. Having featured in some of my most accomplished and personally-important traditional-media drawings (i.e. these ones: [link]), it seemed appropriate that 'Blue' should be the one to lead the way into this brave new digital world.

I have no idea how long this ended up taking me, but it was certainly a good few hours. It took so many layers that GIMP started to struggle with it, so it got broken up across three different .xcf files for the various stages of production. Maybe I went a bit too crazy with the Sparks brush; I don't know.

Fun fact: the original sketch featured a really badly-drawn Portal Gun. But I got rid of it because it was really badly drawn. Who'd 'ave thought?
