Day 27: Birthday Candle

Another inverted drawing, where I drew using complementary colors. Take a look at the uninverted ("verted"?) image. That's how I drew it. It's fun coming up with the right colors, though I admit to cheating a bit by scanning and then adjusting when the colors weren't quite right the first time. :P I sorta roughly based it on a couple of photos of candles, but it's not quite a copy.

  2. It's colored pencil. :) I rather like how the pink parts came out after inversion. Or, in general, how the mixture of different colors plus black/white came out.

  3. Nice, I like how it shines a light on the space around it.

  6. knightsintodreams, yeah, see the link in the description for the original scan. "Inverting" just replaces all colors with their complementary colors and reverses the brightness as well.
