Taral Wayne - Gold Skunk (colour by Ezalias)

Note by Leem: Posted on Taral’s Furaffinity site as “Silence”,
and on his Deviantart site under the current title.

Ezalias has not enough to do, apparently, but it is our gain that he had coloured
these drawings of mine. The gold was particularly well done. And I couldn’t agree more.

Ezalias describes his technique in the following terms:
Most of what I've colored lately uses a tool specifically for pictures like this. Red & green gradients get replaced with pixels from an image of a sphere. I can fiddle with the shape alone, then apply shading or shine at the very end. When it works, it's fantastic, and when it doesn't, it hurts.

Later adding: My talents are mostly code and stubbornness. Coming at this problem sideways was easier than dissecting why gold looks like gold - that's why most of the jewelry I've colored looks less shiny than some of your [Taral’s] black-on-white inks. The upside is, if you've got a metal ball and a room to photograph it in, I can put one of your statues there.

The figure is based on Stop Motion.
A mirrored nude version of this pose was the basis for Stone Angel.
