I was inspired by some of the awesome digital artists here on the board and thought, why not give it a go?
Well, it's heaps different to pen-and-paper but I am HOOKED and now want to do more!
So here, without further ado, is my first ever lineart colouring in! (using a mouse, I couldn't draw the lines so got them from the talented Eduscia on dA.)
I did use a tutorial to start, but sort of made it up to suit this particular horse :)
Critiques are welcome! However, please do NOT critique the lines, I did not draw them, just the colouring/shading. In fact, some of the amazing artists here, I would really appreciate it :).
Personally, I like the overall shading but think it lacks texture (though exporting it killed the quality HEAPS) and it has issues with the tail, lol. I didn't know how to chop it out. Also, the face is darker than the body. But I think it's pretty good for a first try!
