March 18, 2004. Pen drawing colored in Photoshop. I know what you're thinking ('Who are you and what did you do with Allison?!'), but I can assure you that I actually created this. I made it so that I could use it as an avatar on a site I frequent. I knew my avatar was going to be a dragon of some sort, but the idea for this came from something I randomly said in a discussion on that site (while I was still avatar-less, of course). It represents me fairly well, albeit on a superficial level--I like dragons, I like grape soda, and my favorite color is purple. And I can get pretty goofy. This is my first experience drawing in pen (I actually drew a sketch in pencil, went over the good parts of it in pen, then erased the pencil), as well as with this cel-shaded style. After creating this image, I find I'm rather fond of both techniques. Expect to see more pen-outlined, cel-shaded stuff in my gallery in the future.
