While working with an author on animal depictions for a project (black-and-white stylised emblems), it's been necessary to produce sketches and color art for my own use as a reference. Here, then, is one of the rejected pieces- wrong color, wrong scale pattern. Done in Photoshop (for the highlights and the eye) and Painter 6 (for the scalework. I was testing out Painter's impasto brushes, mostly. I did have a photo for reference, but no photomanipulation was involved.
