My newest picture of Canina and Milly. The story behind it can be red here. I began Presentation in June and finished it today. Not that I needed so long but I was involved in two software project and had no time for two month. Click on the picture to have a bigger version hosted on deviantArt.
As I was in a training course for drawing realistic human bodies last year, I drew a lot of body parts just for training. Legs, feet, hands, heads, booties, boobs, …. The course lasted three month, three days a weak and 90 minutes each. I am a quick learner I was told and I am improved in that three month. One of the big topics was lightning. Unfortunately we drew only human bodies but most of that can be used for furries too. My last work Canina Sexy Side Pose, Canina Back Bose, Canina Another Side Pose and Canina Side Pose II is a result of that course. Of course I still need practice with fur, hair and face proportions but I never said I am perfect. I already joined the next course beginning in June. Same topic but with a different trainer. We also get a living model instead of one displayed via beamer.
After a few weeks of drawing nothing I decided to draw myself a new desktop background with Canina. I am experimenting again with Canina. Trying out something new. I just keep the colors but I tried to shade Canina in one go instead of many. Means I need a lot less layers and time. Asked a few friends and they said: it’s a step backwards in quality but also a step forward in future when I get used to that. (One of them is a graduated arts student. Learned a lot from him. Many things about lightning I learned from him.)
I bought myself a Wacom Intuos Pro M and created Canina back pose with it. Canina sexy side pose was still colored with my Wacom Pen tablet. It also was the first time I colored a picture with 2HD Resolution. A friend of mine gave me this advise. But I had some weird wavy color effects I did not recognized before. I do not know how to describe them but their are gone with the Intuos Pro. I also tried changing to 16bit channel but I guess this is not the reason. I still cannot say why this happened. The effect is still noticeable if Canina sexy side pose is viewed at 1920×1080. Even on my 1080 LED screen.
