Nian has been waiting patiently for me to find the time to finish him off as a digital painting. With my first colour study of him being back in April I figured it was about time to give him a home.
Because of the way in which I layered my original colour study, I was kind of handcuffed as to how I was going to deal with him in a finished image. At least within my time frame this week. It took some playing with the layer modes to get the effect I was looking for, but I am totally happy with the finished product!
