New Problem

So, I did this picture and really like ir, but when I scan it the flames blend and lose all the yellow and contrast between the red and orange. I have scanned and photographed and ajusted and can not get it perfect. This is a photo from outside in the sun (which is to bright to see the creen to square the picture properly and it still needed digital ajusting to try and get it close to the original. So here is my problem child; "Djinn Summoned", 9 x 12, Micron pens, Copic mearkers, Sharpie markers and white gel pens on grey paper. Original and prints available (once I get a square and color correct version). Picture 34.

For Tomarrow...

Holy Symbols Batman

I used to be on a D&D art page on Facebook (I was kicked out for reasons I wwas never given). But before that happened I was commissioned to do a set of Holy Symbols for a private game.
