Well, here it is, the first picture I've coloured with Photoshop...and I'm not really happy about it - but it's still my first computer-coloured picture, so I put it up here anyway. Please be kind...I'm still learning. I'm also putting up the lineart in my scraps, so you can see what it looked like before I started mutilating it. :)

The picture shows my amazon, Zefira, who happens to be a priestess of Rondra, the goddess of honourable duels and battles (in the role playing game DSA)

This picture was inspired by the Clone Wars graphic novels. I immediately fell in love with the style of Jan Duursema and now I'm trying to learn how to draw like him. :D

This one is, despite all its flaws, dedicated to my boyfriend, , who keeps encouraging me to go on. I love you. :heart:

the overall image got a bit too dark in terms of saturation (or maybe just my monitor).

*blubb* *vorbeischwimmt* <-- weil's grad regnet und ich keinen Schirm dabei hatte und davor japanisch hatte bis... 10... :O_o:
Aber... das woll ich eigentlich jetzt net sooo ausbreiten...

Also mein erstes Photosho Bildchen sah... bescheiden aus... ^^
Hast du eigentlich ein grafik Tablett oder is das mit Maus gemacht??
Für den ersten Versuch is das echt klasse geworden... ^-^
Ich mag die highlights in den haaren... Die sind echt gut geworden!!!! Die leuchten so richtig... :w00t:
Und die outlines sind dir ja auch gelungen... :nod: hehehehe... yay!!!
Sollte meine Gwen auch mal zeichnen...

Gomen das hat ein bisserl gedauert... Hatte noch was zu tun... :nod:

Jaaaaa, solltest die gute Gwen unbedingt mal mit einem Feuerball in der Hand oder so :devilish:

Ich freu mich ja schon sooooooo auf morgen! *hihi*

Freut mich, dass es Dir gefällt

Awesome detail on the hair; there are so many fine lines, shadows and highlights that it's actually beginning to look real, despite the fact that the whole drawing is so stylized. I love her expression, too! She looks so smug about something . . . XP

For a first in the digital works, this is actually quite nice. The colours are smooth and the lighting is great. Kudos to you, because I like the word 'kudos' and you deserve it! =D

Dont know what you have, Pia, it sure looks cool! Very much Duursema ;)
And now I know why you have started outlining your pencil drawings in black.
