IF: Wings

Hello everyone! I’m really excited because I’ve been experimenting with a new way to paint digitally. I’ve always been someone who prefers traditional painting, but I just love how easy it is to “mix” colours on a computer. I feel like I came up with a technique that works for me. I like how the colouring still looks traditional while being digital. The linework was done with charcoal, however. I still can’t grasp doing my linework digitally! This is my submission for Illustration Friday this week. The topic was “wings”. I’m pretty happy with how it turned out, and I feel like I’m onto something, which for an artist is always something good! 😀

Hope you enjoy this as much as I enjoyed making it!
