Illustration Friday: Midsummer Night

This week's Illustration Friday topic is "Midsummer Night" so I'm re-posting my "Bug Summer" illustration from last year. It seemed a good fit!

  10. Hi Cid,

    I begin with a pencil drawing and then scan it into Photoshop and paint it on the computer with a Wacom tablet. :)

  11. Hi Courtney,

    Thanks a lot for your answer. If I dared, I ask you some tips and tricks to try to color me too
    my drawings but of course knowing that I could not have your level. Go,
    I dare, do you have some tutorials or tips to share.

    Thank you for your drawings that are dreaming.
