NaArMaMo 2008, Day 11: K-9
Doctor Who fan art featuring the heavily corroded K-9 seen in the series 2 episode School Reunion.
This is my eleventh piece for this year's (Inter)National Art Making Month, in which you create a new piece of art every day in August.
This was drawn on a tablet PC using a variable width brush for the lines and the airbrush tool for the colouring. Total time spent was about 5.5 hours, about 3 hours of which was the line art layer.
I completely under estimated how much work it would be to draw K-9. Straight lines and machinery take time -- 3 hours in this case! As a result of that, I started too late and the colouring was a crazy rush. Even then I finished at 0:45!
I still think this looks good but I'll be coming back to it in my lunch break tomorrow to erase around all the lines/edges -- I didn't have time to do that tonight so there'll be some colour bleed.
Update 31st of August: Re-drew the collar and removed some colouring which was extending over the lines.
