    Default New Caledonian Gecko sketch


    LOG IN TO CLOSE THIS AD   


    This is still a work in progress but i thought i'd share as the basic sketch is almost done. I'm planning to scan it and do some photoshop on it for cleaner lines and probably color. Input is always appreciated
    Hope you like!

    Well, i had time to work on it so I added a creepy chahoua eye, changed the cricket to a weta (going for all New Caledonian here), and put in some more pitcher plants. Then I finally finished inking it and got my scanner up and running. I'm still unsure if i'll color it but here it is scanned, and slightly modified using a photo editing program to bring out the black and clean up some of the lines. Critiques welcome

    Yeah, you do, Kelly! And thank you! I recently got interested in paper craft and have been scheming up a way to turn this pic into a different kind of paper art with dimension so it looks like you're looking into a forest. Though i have never done one so i'm still asking for advice from artists that do that style and need to practice before I jump in. I think the hardest part will be coloring the animals themselves as i'm not sure how realistic to go. But i want them to stand out so I may do less realistic for them but super realistic for the trees and such...so much to think about!

    Just an update I decided to do my paper project concept which is frankly really hard to explain so i'll just refrain from going into detail on that for now. But so far I have colored three of the geckos in preparation to do that project...here they are!
