coloured pencils and gold marker. 2016
Spell Gone Wrong was the February 2016 monthly contest theme on Projekt ilustrace. I like centaurs, As you might have guessed from my gallery, so when I saw the monthly theme, I immediately thought about some unexpected and unintended centaur transformation but it took some time to elaborate the idea. I also played a bit with the gold marker to draw those magic sparkles, which made it impossible to scan (for some reason the scanner just ignores the shine and makes the "gold" into some dull brownish hue), but in the end I managed to make a photo of it and after some tweaks in Photoshop I am more or less satisfied with the colours.
I'm not used to making up backstories for my pictures (more often I draw illustrations of existing stories), but this picture just called for one.
By the way, it was voted the best one in the monthly contest!
So what do you think about it?
