gkfdfdk finally freaking finished
I think this has gone through 4 'finished stages' I kept on adding and changing things and details. I tried so many new things with this. I did the whole drawing (including background) as a grayscale and then spent several hours getting the colour right. I'm never
grayscaling an entire painting again
I ended up going mad crazy with colours and effects to hide the faults in the colouring.
In the end though I'm really happy with it, I like how dramatic it turned out. If there's something I'd like to change it would be the Rob's face and the ground which was ruined by all the effects..
Oh and yes Canto is meant to sparkle, I decided that instead of pimping his tack in a 'wintery way' I could spray him with some glitter spray (all natural stuff
) so now he's a sparkle pony woopwoop!
