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
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
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.
