On a mountain top the panda did roam
Hello, it's that time of the year that all the established sci-fi and fantasy artists get together and submit their work to Spectrum. At the same time, anyone else who thinks they know how to draw a dragon tries to enter as well. Needless to say, I have to enter, getting into Spectrum would be a dream come true. Although I don't think that I'll put in a dragon, how about the next best thing? A panda! So this is my entry into Spectrum. It was a good way for me to practice (don't we all need to be practicing all the time?) painting mountains and animals, together. Oh yeah. Word. The image isn't that great, I'll have a better one up tomorrow or the next day, along with some process shots. I started with a charcoal drawing, painted it with gouache and finished it with acrylic. I spent about 2 weeks on it, not too bad, can I just say how much I like paint? Keep watching for more to come!
