Bluetongues by Alhippa Bluetongues by Alhippa
I downloaded the demo version of ArtRage, and wanted to try it. Unikeko was kind enough to select one of her kukuris to be the victim of my experiment. Since the pretty, fluffy boy has a nice blue tongue, I almost immediately had this image in my head.
I still have a lot to learn about ArtRage, but I quite like the program. This pic took me a few hours to make, mostly because I messed up a few times at the beginning, and using the brushes was pure trial and error -process. And as you can see, the demo version of the program puts watermarks to your image. It also only allows .jpg export, so I'm sorry if the quality isn't too good. Also, if my memory serves me right, this is the first time I didn't do any lineart. I had a really messy sketch which I used as a guide to get all the solid colours in place. After that I hid the sketch, and did some details. Lights and shadows are nearly non-existent, sorry. I ran out of energy, and my tailbone decided that I should stand up and do something else than draw. 

Someday in the distant future I will get myself a blue-tongued skink. They are so lovely creatures. I think that the one I used as a reference for this pic was tiliqua multifasciata. 

Done with Wacom Cintiq 13HD and ArtRage in about 3 hours.

Edit 23.1.2017: I had forgotten the darker colour at the kukuri's nose! Now it has been corrected, and I learned that you can actually lock transparency in ArtRage. Very handy indeed.
