Days 45 and 46 – Three-Banded Armadillo – Ink and Digital Colour

From the same issue of National Geographic I was looking at a few days ago I found a great picture of a Three-Banded Armadillo.  They are such unusual creatures and I always think they look really cool.   So  sketched this one…

Then I inked the picture with watersoluble ink and added some greyscale tone using water…

Then I scanned it in and coloured it digitally…

    1. It took about an hour for the drawing and inking and then about half an hour for the digital colour. I’m really lucky with things like the scales – I enjoy repetative tasks like that – they help me relax. Perhaps that’s part of my autism coming out? 🙂
