Skydancers in Infrared 1 by SilverGryphon8 Skydancers in Infrared 1 by SilverGryphon8
I've done several versions of this over the years, but this is the first all-digital one.

Here we have a pair of sky-dancing gryphons, perhaps on a mating flight, whose picture has been taken with a false-color thermal imaging camera.

AKA, SilverGryphon having yet more fun with opacities and whatnot XD

Varied opacities, that's all. I sketched out the figures, then began layering with translucent red, orange, and yellow on the 'hot' parts of the body. 'Cool' parts of the body like the wing surfaces got treated later with translucent violet and blue, and then the very hottest parts got a bit of the Dodge tool applied to them to make them look even hotter. Then there was some saturation/contrast tweaking. All on one layer to make it all blend.

I actually have a version of this in acrylics floating around that I did a few years back. I might scan it at some point.
