Flying Dragon – revisited
Working on that piece really taught me an important lesson:
- Do not rush with lineart. In this case I definitely was too fast with my lineart which resulted in a piece which was “quick and dirty”. Whenever I want to try something out I tend to rush myself, focusing on a new method (“I want to see whether this will work if I do it this way”).
Fortunately I’d put the drawing on a separate layer, so I could change it, but I had to change the colouring as well.
- Do not give up too early. Well, there was a time when I was considering throwing the whole piece into the trashcan. But I’m not only an impatient person, I’m also a person who doesn’t want to give up. So I made the neck longer, I thought about the light source, I worked on the background. It is still not a masterpiece, but it looks better than the first version does!
