I've never attempted to do a fully digital piece for one of my own projects before, probably because of the lingering thought that it might turn out downright rubbish. Well, I finally put my itchy fingers into action... With my first fully digital piece of illustration (at last)! The image was originally at least two times the size of the final here, but my dislike of several elements led me to crop it and work on smaller elements. I don't imagine my character Lance to be necessarily giving his pal Yolos the 'cold shoulder', as that's not what the original sketch was all about, although Yolos does make it a habit to say inappropriate things every now and then. It could be taken in any number of different ways.

Wow! I really like the mood you set here. The chracters look beautiful an the snow clinging to their fur looks so real. Beautiful job! How long did it take you to do and what program did you use?

Aww, thank you very much! This took about 8 hours as it was the first time I had seriously tried my hand at painting digitally. Now it would have taken about 4. The program used was Photoshop. ;)

Aww, thank you. This is rather old now, but I'm still quite fond of it. :)

I didn't go to art school (although I did study to become a graphic designer). Most of my illustrative stuff is self-taught through trial and error.

Aww, now don't say that! Ever artist has the ability to do well. :nod:

thanks for the tip. I didn't actually mean it that way (not now anyways), it's just that earlier this week I was really down on myself. Now I'm fine!
Fantastic artwork nonetheless.
