    A Touch of Blue

    The zebra was painted in Artrage 5 using the Square Canvas 4 in the custom brushes.
    The background was done in Photoshop.
    The reference photo is from Wet Canvas.

    Nice stuff happening. Interesting to work the stripes and to go back in and paint the white between the lines. Sometimes it's a cool alternative to create the volume of the body in white and model that and then go back and paint the stripes and match the adjacent values at that point. But this is very cool. Got to love animals with patterns to paint.

    Can't wait to see more.

    Thanks so much, D Akey........on this one I was all over the place...lol. I guess it WOULD have been easier to paint all white and then the stripes and colors, but I did some here, some there, some black, some white, some color......just whatever the moment seemed to call for. It was fun and I think he is more handsome than the ref pic.

    Those background colours work really well with this. I like the blues and other colours you've worked into the white stripes. Very cool!
