Ikran pen/watercolor project
« on: January 28, 2019, 11:50:01 pm »
So recently (being a bit of an artist) I've taken to attempting to create an Ikran through water color and pen/sketch outline. Thoughts, perhaps?

UPDATE: I'll give regular updates day to day as I work :)


Update #2: Added color to lower wings (ew watercolor) and more than likely I am going to add the back tail wings near the legs
Uodate #3: Added facial color, and darkened out some other areas. Still haven't gotten around to adding lower wings, but that should come soon!
Update #4: Finished upper facial base and abdominal colors. There's going to be some blending (for effect) but I determined that adding the tailwings isnt such a fantastic idea at this point, and they wouldn't be visible from the angle I have anyway (perched)
Update #5: Finished (!) the main body, and I'll be having another artist help me with the background (I'm lazy). It's been a journey for sure!

Thank youuuu!
the watercolor is by far the most anxiety inducing (flashbacks to 3rd grade fiascos)

Looking good! :D
The only things I've noticed are anatomy/perspective issues. Ikran don't have any hindlegs, only rudimentary at best; instead they have a second pair of wings, under which those leg remnants are located. Also, the form of the tips of their wings, the three-splitted part, usually has more of a shape of remiges, like those of eagles or other birds of prey and have an insect-wing like structure to them.
Some shading would be a real treat, but your style works fine as is, I guess :)

Ahhh, I do forget to note that this is my first attempt at such a drawing. I've also got requirements to meet for the class I'm in, so watercolors was a must :(

You can do awesome shading with watercolor tho, that's what it excels at actually :D

Eywa oeru. I fear perhaps that I lack the talent to properly shade watercolors. I'll certainly see what I can do with it.

Forget talent, it's all about practise ;) Keep on drawing and experimenting and you'll improve for sure.

Yisss :D I think it will turn out okay, with slight work and me going for a good background. But hrmph, I've set my eyes to another ambitious project... perhaps the most ambitious I've attempted.  :-\ :ikran: sculpting anyone?
