Ikran by blackbirdrose Ikran by blackbirdrose
Finally finished! :phew: My first digital painting with a drawing tablet! It was lots of fun... whilst also being a pain the arse. :stab: But its finished and thats the main thing.

Making the wing patterns symmetrycal was probably the hardest thing but I knew it would look odd otherwise. :) And i gave up and did a fairly simply backdrop becuase I was tired and because i didn't want to detract attention away from the banshee/ikran itself.

Really happy with how it turned out overall - and i finally found a reason to use the solar flare in Photoshop! Neat, huh? :giggle:

I KNEW what it was before I read the description! :iconvictorydanceplz: I loved that movie!!! :iconflailplz: My daddy called them big chickens and he called the orange one the big turkey :meow: But he's just weird like that. When we were watching "Clash of the Titans" (the new one the old one sucked worse than Hell!) and it came to the part with the kraken he said, and I quote "Release the butt-kraken!!"
We laughed :3
