Rodent entrails.

Now in new Technicolour!

Details on that rat are stunning and his more realistic colouring is a nice juxtaposition to the vibrant colours of his entrail snake/worms.

They're filter feeders but they can project their stomachs as a defense mechanism.

I use it for line-drawings sometimes; Like the clip-art folder here: [link]
But I'm mostly traditional right now, with a little finishing help from photoshop. But I say what was used in the descriptions. Why do you ask?

cuz i just started using illustrator cs5 and just wanted to see what the program is capable of doing :)

Oh my god, You should get this: [link]

It has 1096 pages just to give you an idea of what that program is capable of. Adobe is insane, there's a reason why it's the industry standard set of programs. I learned on 7.0 in 1999 and have kept up with it ever since. Let me know what you come up with :)

I'm glad you like it. I'm not quite sure what I was thinking about for the mouths, but I'm happy with them too.

I'm glad you stuck with me all this time, this piece had a lot of issues. Don't use Liquitex permanent pouring gloss varnish :P But I'm happy it's finally up. Thanks again :)

Thanks :) Yeah realism vs. stylism; something I'm working on. I like the mouse too, was really proud of the fur. Sorry you can't see what the painting really looks like. Cheers :)

yeah i wanted to ask how you got the fur so fine
Reply
:iconmisterblackwood:
MisterBlackwood Featured By Owner Nov 18, 2012  Professional General Artist
Cool. well I used a superfine drafting pen and laid each hair by hand, then I did several transparent washes with watercolor. Next I went over the fur with thin colored pencil lines, alternating white and black and then did hi-lights with white semi-transparent acrylic. I find realism (not photo-realism, mind you, but my kind of realism) needs that kind of attention. That's why I have avoided it up to now, But I'm really happy with the direction I'm going so please stay tuned for more. Next will probably be bats, as I'm very pleased with the bat in my other new piece. Thanks for asking, hope the answer wasn't too boring. Cheers :)
