Silurian: Step Five

Silurian Color

I’m not as good a colorist as I’d like to be. I have a hard time knowing how to balance colors. Color is a tool and one of the best ways to learn how to use to tools is to restrict the uses of them. For this illustration, I decided to stick with just purple (for the shadows of the cave) and yellow (for whatever the light source is).

How does it look?

Silurian Sketch

In Morgo the Mighty, the Silurians are a race of scale-skinned humans who obey the commands of the evil Zorimi. I’ve got plans to adapt and illustrate Morgo but those plans are long term. I’ve got a lot of other projects to complete before I can dedicate much time to that. I can, in the meantime, do some development illustrations.

The image in today’s post is the base sketch for one of those illustrations.
