The Flight by shirotsuki The Flight by shirotsuki
Horses! Again.. Yes. I know. I need much, much more practice on horses = =;. Anyway. It's the program book cover for this year's AUSA, where the theme is all desert adventure arabian nights awesomeness. Yaaaay! Purple and blue and purple and blueee~~

Actually, way harder than the horses was figuring out how to do the constellations. I had another stab at using pencil shading instead of digital shading.. the difference between this time and most times is it worked better than before X D;. But I like how this came out, and it was really fun to make. I got to relapse into my 'I have to put sparklies on everything' phase!

Sparkliess.....

MATERIALS!
Strathmore Drawing paper
Prismacolor pens - all of the hard outlines
Ballpoint pen - incorporated, but didn't work as planned
Pencils - initial drawing and shading. 2H, 2B, 8B
Adobe photoshop 7.0 - big color washes
Open Canvas 4+ - details (stars stars stars..)

The sparkles made my eyes hurt. I guess shiny horses are haphazard to your health.

The idea of the concept is still good, though.
