Taking Me Higher by Skysealer Taking Me Higher by Skysealer
Shaded sketch for Raventhan of FA!

So, this image has a STORY. Oh boy! This is actually the second version of this image because Photoshop decided it wanted to be a dork and completely eat the original (and it had the most beautiful scales, too! >:C ). I save like a mad man, and it basically said the image never existed when it burped on me. I looked everywhere on my hard drive, did a file search, checked 'Open Recent' in Photoshop and... Nada.

So.

I took an hour for a breather and restarted it from scratch. =Shadowmanic can attest to my plight as she actually watched me livestream the entire lining process and saw all the awesome details it had. DX Ah well. I just couldn't work with scales any more today, so good thing he has really, really fine scales. Good thing I remembered the exact pose I had him in so there's something. C;
Would have had two sketches done today if I hadn't had my little mishap, but nothing you can do about it but raise your chin and move forward!

Tools: Photoshop CS, Wacom Intuos 3
Time: Unrecorded, started and finished today
Music: Pandora Radio

You cannot just save and save and save... you need to save as a new file whenever you make major changes that you are happy with. I've lost a few files the way you have, too.
