Photoshop and drawingtablet
First place contest prize for: Furrama
Time taken: roughly 30-35 hours or so
Original Photoshop file size: 676 MB (ugh...)

I. FINALLY. finished. it!! Furrama's first prize for winning the fakemon category! It's her two characters Hellkat (the yellowish creature being bitten in the throat) and Garm (the hound doing the biting) fighting. To the death, obviously. That green stuff bubbling from Garm's mouth is acid (another reason to NOT want to get bitten by this puppy); it's not Hellkat's blood. However, I imagine he's probably bleeding anyway, somewhere underneath all that fur. Apparently Furrama is actually developing a game using these two characters! Way cool. ^__^

Anyway, this is my second attempt at lineless art, and it's the first time I managed to produce something I'm quite happy with. My previous attempt was somewhat less impressive. I don't know why I decided to use this picture, of all possible options, to practice drawing lineless. I certainly could have chosen an easier picture than this one, what, with all the entangling limbs and stuff.
Regardless, this picture turned out pretty well, even if I do say so myself! I did have to simplify the design somewhat. Originally I had a big temple complex standing in the background. But it was driving me nuts, so I had get rid of most of it. I replaced it with some more boring, but easier to draw... rocks... I had to scale this image down a bit. You can find a bigger version here.

Oh, and here are some tutorials which were quite useful:
- Textures turorial (rocks 'n stuff)
- Fur tutorial
- Fire tutorial
