My last two entries into this contest weren't at all my normal style. This one is more like what I typically do, and it was a lot of fun (if not tiring) to work on.
Normally I hate backgrounds, and I'm not used to them, but doing the ropes on the curtains and coordinating all of the colors, and all of those tiny tassels on the throne were actually really fun.
I wanted this piece to be bright and vibrant - a total contrast to our spoiled Prince's mood. He looks so put out and insolent.
- 2 free use textures used.
- Original size 4000x4000 or so.
- Because I'm proud of it, here are some closeups: [link]
- The Skribble is hopefully noticeable. It's in his cape: the buttons and the fur lining. The lines on our left side have been totally unaltered. The lines on the right haven't been moved apart, but part of some of the lines are obscured by his hair.
Most importantly: Happy Birthday, dA! And thanks for the awesome contests that got my creativity going again.
