Here's a Red Sonja I did in marker and color pencil. I've done a few of these lately to experiment, have some fun, and to see color on something other than a damn screen. I really enjoy working with real materials. While I love the perfect finish of the computer and rely on it to finish my images the way I usually see them in my head, getting there can be a grind- I can't tell you how many times I have wished I could just reach up to the screen and smudge something with my finger, or splatter some paint. Instead, I have to find a phony "splatter" brush. It is emasculating.
Even if I usually prefer digital colors on my own stuff, virtually all of my favorite artists worked with actual paint, so maybe I just need to practice more to get that flawless finish with real materials. Damn computer.
