Blue Winter by hibbary Blue Winter by hibbary
My last big hurrah before I got back to the commission thing. This is blue ink, mostly, with a little watercolor and color pencil thrown in for good measure. The whole thing was just an experiment in seeing what I could do with my ink and how well cardstock reacted to it. I had meant for the image to be far, far more stylized and flat than it came out, so now it's just a semi-realistic picture with very incorrect lighting. XD

I rather like the outcome, though it is somewhat flat and bizarre. But unless you have a set plan when you start with something as unforgivable as ink, it's bound to turn out a little on the wonky side. Unless you are an ink master! I am not.

O, btw, for those of you who don't follow my scraps, this is Winter, a snowy owl/arctic fox griffin. Or gryphon, if you like :P

but still for ink that is still pretty good. Im only good with color pencil and graphite. I never had a good taste for pen, or paint. I havent. And im still trying to get better at drawing griffins too, your detail for them is nice. I never can get the proportions right. Your art is very nice. :)
