This one was a lot of fun to color. It's the second one I've done in what could become a series of drawings involving this girl who finds herself on a handful of bizarre islands. Every hero needs to start their journey somewhere...

Wow - it's beautiful! The colors, the drawings - and your very special way of coloring!

How are you making the wonderful colours/textures?

Hey everybody, thanks a bunch for checking out my work and letting me know how much you like it. It's really nice to see that people I don't know think what I'm doing isn't garbage.

As for the textures, I use either photos or scans and tweak them in Photoshop. I usually draw with pen and ink and color them on the computer. I just have fun with it really.
