Someone gifted this to me, I came home today to a poster tube from dA at my back door. I was thrilled to see this print inside. I have no idea who sent it but I absolutely love it!!!

Absolutely GORGEOUS!!! :jawdrop: The drawing alone is superb, but the LIGHT just brings it to whole new levels of awesomeness! I just LOVE the light! :squee: The two different sources of light was handled so well here! The way it illuminates every feather and fleshes out the creature as a whole...beautiful! :happybounce: Someday, I hope to do digital art that's even close to this caliber. Well done! :clap:

This is georgous! May i ask a question? What did you do with the liner to make it merely invisible, like a no line painting? Did you just coloured it whith amazing ability thanks to "lock opacity"? Thank you !

I started with a sketch that had lines... actually it's (cleaned up a bit) here: [link]
Then I started blocking in my colors and lights in general, on a layer underneath the sketch.. nothing detailed... but enough for me to know where certain shapes needed to be. Usually what I tend to do is make the opacity on my sketch layer super light...light enough I can still see it, but not dark enough to interfere with my colors and things on my paint layer. Eventually, I don't need it at all.
I DO lock my paint layer, once I have the whole thing filled in with color.. that way I don't have to worry about going over the edges when I'm painting. Usually after I'm all done, I'll unlock it and go around the edges, fixing little inconsistencies.. there's always a few. :}
hope that helps!
