"Hexapod" step three: Color

Here's the color version of my "Hexapod" drawing.



I may try another version, but I kind of like the combination of the watercolor and the photo background. -- PL

That turned out great, and I love the photo background, it's adds a really cool layer of depth to the branches.

Wow! The color really makes a difference! I also like the photo background. It works well with this picture.

It turned out great. I do like the water color with the ohoto background. It makes it seems realistic even though its an alien bug creature.

When it comes to art I never did anything more than complex drawings. So if I may ask what was the process to add a phto background to a water color drawing?

Photoshop or Imageready usually helps with stuff like that mikeandraph87

As "Jeff M" said in the comment following yours, Photoshop is a good tool to use for these things. And it is what I used. I scanned the art that I had watercolored, then opened that in Photoshop, and selected all of the background areas.I then opened the photo I was going to use for the background, selected it and copied it into memory, and then used the "Paste Into" command in Photoshop to drop the photo background in. -- PL
