Commission for Hex666 (of FA) of his Fennec, Hex, whipping up some strong magic. One light, one dark, but looking like a pro keeping them in balance. (It's way harder than it looks, though, I assure you!)
This one I started much differently than the others. Normally I do my grayscale first, then lay color over top... But this one, I decided to try busting straight into color when blocking in values. It created a little bit of trouble for me early on, but with some help and critique from Stigmata, I think it went in a good direction. I always avoided it out of fear that just starting color would "ruin" a piece for me, like I needed the grayscale to make sure everything was okay first. I think I'm getting over that fear, slowly but surely!
