Draw dragons to improve your composition skills. #Smaugust composition challenge. August 1 - 31
Another InuKag wedding-centric piece that turned into a bit of a personal exercise in... well... everything.
I wanted to play with clothing folds since it's something I'm always working on, and I also wanted to see how well I could pull off pattern on fabric since I hadn't purposely tried to do it since college. It also turned into an exercise in lighting and color, and overall I'm very happy with the result. I was originally going to do a little more detailing in the background, but the rendering on the clothing turned out so beautiful that I didn't want to detract from it.
