Ladies and Gentlemen... for the first time ever... I did not use Paint Shop Pro 7 to make this. o_o
Thank you all who commented on my journal entry with your suggestions! I finally got up the nerve to try Paint Tool SAI. At first I was tearing my hair out because it lacked the two tools my art has always been based on - Smudge, and Lighten/Dodge. But then... I figured it out. And after painting for awhile and getting the hang of it, realized... I don't NEED the smudge tool.
o_o; Party at my place.
About the picture itself: it was originally just an experiment (as I got ready to throw my computer and the programs out the window), which turned into this once I realized it clicked. I do a portrait of Snow and a spacey BG every year! This one's title/concept is based on a line of lyrics from a dance song I'm kind of in love with. It makes me very happy, and, well, the sentiment is true.
Shiny wolf art. Now with 100% less smudge!
