ASHWARD -Thoughts on colouring.

Digital colouring is a strange world, a sinful playground where we decadently toy with colour and light, always able to correct our mistakes or change our minds with the flick of a button... it is both wonderful and abhorrent. So convenient and yet so fruststraiting. Digital colouring is clean and cool, bright and flawless perfect for our modern world, though it can in skilled hands be used to create dark and brooding imagery and seemingly artful vistas.
For me it will always lack that 'visceral' quality that can only be achived with the use of traditional media or atleast a healthy mix.

I will likely return to this project when time alows and give Illphy her propers with a brush and pen before she goes under the photoshop knife.
