Desert Gold by Inku-inku Desert Gold by Inku-inku
A noble spotless Serval, traveling the desert with his grumpy golden companion.

See this?-
This is a 3 yr old sketch of mine I found on my pc recently and one of my first failed attempts at digital arts. This week I decided to make something out of it, in spite of the screwed up anatomy x>. I think the face looks much better now (the hand/arm doesn't, but oh well.).

I still have no idea what am I doing most of the time when working digitally. Still trying out different brushes and settings, hopefully to become as comfortable with it as with the traditional media. Tips are greatly appreciated!

I don't really know what I'm doing when it comes to digital either xD  But whatever you're doing.......keep doing it!!! The combination of traditional/digital is really great and gives interesting effects. The colors are very vibrant, and you've somehow managed to make it look like a full watercolor painting, yet it's digital. Maybe I just haven't been around that much but to me it's a very unique and pleasing style! :)

It really confuses me how you're able to get your digital art to look so similar to your traditional art. Textures and colors and all that, so... similar in the feeling. Whenever I try digital... pfft, totally different and also very primitive. Despite you saying that you have no idea what you're doing while doing digital art, this looks very cool and professional. Like you would have done this already years.

Many thanks dear Kalla, I'm extremely flattered!!!
Perhaps the similar feeling is due to the fact that I paint over a traditionally made sketch - some pencil still shows and so does the texture of the paper (I sometimes even give the sketch a slight watercolor wash before painting over it digitally, so I guess I'm 'cheating' a bit ;>) ..
I still very much enjoy your digital works by the way, even if they are a bit different from your traditional pieces :>.

I like how your digital art looks really similar to your traditional art, style and palette and everything. Mine is completely different and it irks me...

Thanks Trolly! Maybe it has to do with me painting over a pencil-made sketch, not starting to paint digitally entirely from scratch : ). I really have no idea.
