There is a series of books I’ve recently been reading about the Malazan Empire written by Steven Erikson which involves humanoid creatures who can shift (veer) into dragons. This was an idea I had in mind as I was working ont his sketch.
This sketch was made in linux Ubuntu 10.10 using MyPaint, the original can be seen HERE. I worked on this for about an hour, it’s my first drawing using the MyPaint program. After the original sketch was done I moved to Windows and finished it out in Photoshop. I must say the brush engine in MyPaint is pretty good, I’ll be using that more in the future but I really need to do some reading about it before I can get faster.
