Illustration Friday: Slither

Not all things that slither are villainous.

Lots of mistakes all about but overall I'm happy I tried to push both the narrative and composition and I think it sort of works.


Need to use more time to work on these in general.

Also cleaned my palette this time around and used my winsor & newton brushes instead of my quick travel brushes.

What do you think?

nice!! I love the tail, and the yellow to blue transition on the left-- that kind of thing can be tricky but you totally pulled it off!

Aw man thanks guys!

I'm glad the lighting seems to be working, though I think i wanted it to be darker overall. Hard to do with watercolors. Perhaps better left to acrylic or oil.
