Banner Artwork

Rarely do I sketch something I am proud of (because I am, to put it bluntly, terrible) and this is an example of such a rare occasion. The Astronomican Forums are going to be revamping the layout a bit and the head admin was looking for a little banner to put across so I decided to sketch something up for the hell of it. I figured I could sketch something decent and then photoshop the hell out of it to make it look at least presentable (I've been getting better at the whole photoshop thing as the Terran Forge banner at the top can atest). Here is the sketch:

And then the after effect of coloring it in and stuff on photoshop:

I am very happy with the way it turned out (which is why I'm posting it) because, as I said earlier, rarely do I draw anything that looks even halfway decent. I'd like to think I'm getting better though!

I think I'm going to keep practicing this drawing thing, it can be fun (though I prefer drawing circuit schematics myself :p)
