I have no idea if my illustrations are going to be allowed to be in color or in black and white, so I'm doing them in both. This is the first, the defiant dancer Clepara Swiftpaws. I was pleased with my inking technique when it came to detailing, especially the fur. I tried to treat the pen as less of a pen and more like a pencil. My hand sure didn't hurt as much as I thought it would. The drawing and inking process took about 14 hours, all done at my work. I think the coloring process will be about 4-6 hours, but we'll see. This will actually appear in my book if it ever gets published, so here's hoping.
