Pyroclash by WindieDragon Pyroclash by WindieDragon
Oh my God I actually finished something :noes:.

After 7 years I finally got a new tablet, a medium Intuos5. It's been surprisingly hard adjusting from my old one to this one, namely the larger working area :o. I started this image on the night that I got it, mainly as practice to help me transition. It didn't take that many hours, I just went several days between working on it, so that's why it took forever. I'm still not quite there yet, so I might need another practice image before I can adjust and fully enjoy drawing again.

I've been unhappy with my coloring as of late, so I tried to push myself to experiment with colors more.

Yeah, I don't have much more to say. Enjoy my two favorite fire types going at it!

Wow, very cool drawing and dynamic poses! I love Arcanine, it's my favorite pokémon and it looks so awesome in this picture! But Typhlosion came out amazing too, of course.

Well, too much in the background can sometimes detract from the subject, as it I think it might in this case. If a better background idea doesn't come to mind, I reckon keeping it simple is best strategy.

Wow, Windie! This came out awesome!

I think the coloring does look different in this piece than your usual work. The tasty painterly approach with hard-edged texture/highlight details is the same, but the shading approach is unfamiliar to me from your previous art. In a good way. :D I really admire the variety of colors mixed into each Pokemon. The strong blue shadows and flame-colored highlights make a strong statement. And it's also cool how Arcanine's far side is more blued-out, while Typhlosion seems brighter. It really makes it look like Typhlosion is closer to the viewer while Arcanine is farther away, adding an extra dimension to the depth beyond what the shading on each Pokemon individually could achieve. :) Looks great! And the trail of Typhlosion's neck-flame gives an intriguing sense of the Pokemon's prior movement. What a dynamic scene overall.

Amazing work. Keep it up! :hug: Hope you get fully used to your new tablet soon.

It's funny because I tried to use an Intous5 a few weeks ago and I couldn't get a hang of it at all. I settled with Intous4 in the end but I did like 5's precision mode a lot better than 4's... ;P

:iconwindiedragon:
WindieDragon Featured By Owner Nov 24, 2012  Professional Interface Designer
I came from Intuos3, so this was the first I'd even heard of precision mode. So far I don't think it's something I'd use. BUT the display toggle and touch input/toggle are awesome! I'll definitely be using my second screen a lot more. My only complaint is that Leopard's onscreen keyboard doesn't have sticky modifiers, but since I already have a shift hotkey mapped it's still alright. Now I never have to let go of my tablet to type :D.
