Here is my rough draft done in pencil, pen and ink.
I did not like how the tongue looked so I got rid of it. I opened my picture in GIMP and got rid of sea creature coming out of his mouth and added teeth. This illustration was then digitally colored.
I must admit this was the first time I digitally colored and I enjoyed it. I'm not ready to go digital all the time but every now and then...I think that would be fine.
As I stated in my previous post entitled, "Illustration Block" I started this challenge last week and I absolutely love it! It not only keeps me drawing but it stimulates my creative mind....And I can tell you, I definitely need that.
I can't wait to see what the new topic is for next week.
See what I did for my first Illustration Friday Challenge here.
Until then...It's back at the drawing board for me.
