Nym, the Fiendslayer Colour by flash-cxxi Nym, the Fiendslayer Colour by flash-cxxi
This is a piece done by Hugo Solis [link] for Jason Beardsley [link] on the Paizo Boards.

Colours are by me. [Done using Derwent Studio colour pencils]

I knocked this one over quicker than most. Hopefully that's a good sign that I'm becoming more confident .

Side Note: There was almost a calamity when I coloured his face. I accidently picked up the Yellow I was using for his hair instead of the Flesh and I actually coloured his face Yellow before I realized. Thankfully the eraser got the worst of it (which is good because it's usually hard to use an eraser without affecting more of the piece).
So if anyone notices a slight Yellowish tinge to his face there's your answer... it wasn't intentional!

Sometimes layering up colors very lightly in colored pencils gives a luminous quality to the final piece. You should try it sometime. :)

Hmmm, thanks I'll have to give it a go.
The only times I usually layer colours are for a skin shade (I start with a flesh and then shade over it with the hue I want) or if I am trying to simulate bone (I start with a white and then shade over it with a pale yellow).

You've got some cool work. I'll have to take some time to have more than a cursory glance.

Yeah I wanted to go a softer colour while still keeping with the browns and greens of the forest. It actually looks a lot Yellower in the scan than it does in the original.
