Circle Dragon. Green by drakhenliche Circle Dragon. Green by drakhenliche
Aaand.. it's a green one! Have added a background I cobbled together with some old images of mine to make a change from the eye watering white space on the others. (Actually, I've put this bg on the others too, will update to the newer versions in due course).

My scanner played nice again and the colours here are fairly true to the original. Maybe as a treat for its good behaviour I'll buy some screen wipes to clean off the ink smears I've managed to make all over the glass over these last few years...

Finished not a moment too soon to bring some prints of it with me to the MCM Expo this weekend :D

Thank you! I've really enjoyed working on them and doubtless there'll be more to come (though I don't have any in the pipeline just at the moment).

They can add a Lot, just don't make them too good looking, Then they become the center of attention. But you would have a hard time taking attention away from the dragons you draw. :yum:

I do sometimes take small trades, like art cards, just not at the moment (have a buttload of commissions I need to work on).

maybe said inksmears are the source of your problem? or at least a contributing factor?

Nah, they don't change the colour - the scanner was terrible with saturated colours (red especially) before then. The ink smears are a minor annoyance I sometimes need to clean off an image once I've scanned it. Apparently I should leave things to dry for longer.

You know how to use channels in photoshop?

:icondrakhenliche:
drakhenliche Featured By Owner Oct 28, 2011  Hobbyist General Artist
Yep. You mean for the ink marks? That won't help given they're black ink ;)

As for the colours, I correct far as possible, but even through the wonder of Photoshop it's never quite the same as the original.

Yeah. The eye can pick up a much larger range of colors than what can be displayed by screens. Hopefully we'll move past that barrier in the coming years. I think it was toshiba that introduced a RGB tv with an extra yellow in there to expand the color range. Hopefully more companies will start doing this with computer screens and the like soon.
