Artistic's Panther by missimoinsane Artistic's Panther by missimoinsane
Yes this is only a bust of a Panther, I thought it was a bit more creative and original that just having the rest of the body lead off the page!!!

This is my half of an art trade with :iconthe-artistic-a: aka =The-Artistic-A who is a fantastic artist!

So I have been doing a lot of research lately into how to improve my digital drawings/paintings and I have had some brilliant advice which was also influenced by PSG Art tutorial - brilliant!

So I decided I wanted to act upon what I have learnt and use it to create new art so I made a poll saying the first 3 people who want to do art trades can have an art trade. =The-Artistic-A asked me if I would do a "Panther" I was given free range over if it was a head shot, full body or what ever I wanted to do but a 'Panther' was the challenge.

So I went off to go find a stock image and found by the lovely ~sekhmet-stock and so decided to use it for a guide as to basic frame shape, where lighting and shading would probably hit and also for insperation in creating something I've never really tackeled before.

I started working in black and white just to get a rough idea but the more I did the more it came together and looked (in my opinion) pretty awesome!

Please leave me crits/comments on how to improve future pieces of my art work. I feel I am really benefitting from everyones advice.

Very pretty. :) I think you may have cracked the balance between softness and hardness in this one. Its not too blurry and the hard lines work really well on bringing the features out where you have added them. :)

Thank you very much I am quite pleased with it myself! Don't worry there's no huge rush! I'm pretty happy with the time I think I spent the majority of the first two hours working out shapes, frames and lines lol... But it all came together quite well (in my opinion)!

Would you like your dragon looking like baby dragon or just a simple pink baby dragon? :)

Well, all I have to do now is add the last layers of color (shading and lighting) and the finishing touches.
