the scales on the fish could be better drawn.

Rick said...

I know what you mean about scanning and color. When I scan my illustrations it's just not the same. So I go into photo shop and try to brigthen them up, but end up loosing some of the definition. I use color pencils too for most of my illustrations.

P.S. Tell "dave" to go fish.

Kstyles said...

Very nice. Looks like it may have taken a while.

My Semblance of Sanity said...

I think its great!

Valeriannah said...

Unlike Dave up there, I like the way you drew the scales. The colors are serene too.

Dawn-Enigma Artist said...

thank you, Dave, for your construction criticism.

How do you know it's a fish?

I like my rendition of scales.

Dawn-Enigma Artist said...

Hi Rick, thanks for stopping by!

when my scanner works the color was just right! It's an HP.

I love the "logo" you did for the really famous Dawn...

Dawn-Enigma Artist said...

kstyles, thank you!

This sketch took close to 4 hours.

All the drawings and sketches and ACEOs are done while I am at work. So in between phone calls I "color"

As soon as my farm sells I'm going FT as an artist (and writer), painting canvases again.

Dawn-Enigma Artist said...

Thank you, Sanity.

I really appreciate when Sane people leave me comments!

Dawn-Enigma Artist said...

Valeriannah, thank you!

there are at least six colors used, maybe eight. Shades of Greens, blues, aquas, violets.

what a lovely name you have!

Dawn-Enigma Artist said...

Thank you ALL for visiting my place.

I'll be visiting y'all this afternoon.

Fridays are my half days. The rest of the week I'm chained to my cube for 9 1/2!
