Tumblr post: [link]Pssst. If anyone knows anyone who might be interested in giving a job to a digital painter and 2D/3D animator, my portfolio is here.
Homestuck made black/white duality themed winged canine characters carrying dead loved ones and I just couldn't stop myself from paying tribute.
Haha, WELL, I didn't intend for this to be a big piece actually. I restarted the coloring/painting of it three different times, getting progressively more realistic with each (the first attempt was quite stylized). Then it just became something nice I could chip at while in my stream to entice people to buy commissions. So the work ended up being very spread out as I worked on it for a half hour at the start of each stream then moved on to commissions. I guess it took about a month of little chunks like that, then when last week was fairly slow I got the rest of it done.
I also started it in Photoshop the first two times before moving to Sai. I just wasn't getting the 'color soup' effect I wanted. Decided now I much prefer Sai for figuring out colors and have started doing all my underpaintings in it. This was done all in Sai except for some post work.
Characters are from Homestuck
