Finished some line art! So, I've been kinda taking it easy the last few days (BECAUSE MY BRAIN REFUSES TO DRAW), but I did get the lines on this finished and I'll be starting on the colors next!
It's done! *bounces* So, there are two sources of light in this image, the moonlight from above (pale cold blue light = warm orange shadows) and the light from the lantern (warm yellow light = cold purple shadows) and it took me a bit to figure out how to approach them. I found that working in layers, just worrying about light source at a time, was really the best way for me. I'm so happy with how he came out! What do you folks think?
I've finished inking the next project! The working title has been "little druid boy". *G* It's already taught me a lot, though! I'm not totally comfortable with characters in environments, yet, but I'm getting there! What do you folks think?
The colors are done!!!! I am so thrilled about how they came out, and I thinking working at 100% opacity has really helped keep my colors from getting muddy. It's been a bit of an adjustment, but I like the results!
What do y'all think?
Hey all! I finished the black and white version! The color version is taking a while because there's tons of details, but I should have it in a few days! So, I really liked the idea of a black and white for this because of the jesters and the moons.
I like the black and white. It has a sort of classical look to it. Maybe reminds me of woodcuts? Is that what I'm thinking of?
Morning all! Today I'm sharing the line art for my next project! I really like the way the lines came out, so I'm doing two versions of it. A black and white one, which I"ll post soon, and a full color one, which is going to take somewhat longer.
What do y'all think?
The colors are in! I finally finished them and I'm really happy with how it came out! There are still a few things I could probably tinker with for the next few days, but when aren't there? I also learned a lot from this piece!
New line art! I mentioned that I was finished with my environment experiments and my next set of experiments would focus more on people in environments (although some of my early sketches are being a little resistant to that concept *side eyes them*) and here's the first line art of the next set!
I am super happy with how it came out, a little nervous about the coloring part, but excited regardless!
The colors are in! It took me a while because I just could not get it to a place where I was totally happy with it. I mean, I had a blast with the sky, but the line art is more stylized that I want to use going forward, so I kept getting frustrated with it. Still, it's done and now I can happily move on to the next projects!
Final landscape experiment of this set! I'm really happy with out the lines came out, but it's going to be a difficult one to paint. It's flatter than the others, there's not a lot to establish depth, which means there's less to help me establish the light and shadow, too. Still, I'm just itching to get to that sky!
Finished the colors! I learned the most about the sky from this one, and now I'm wishing that was the focal point of the image! *head desk* But, I'm happy with it overall. I also realized that while the stylized landscapes are fun, I generally want more detail overall in the future, but I also learned to sacrifice detail when there other elements working to pack a visual punch. *nods* So, overall the experiments are going well!
New line art landscape experiment! I'm giving mountains a go next, and I think there's going to be more than one set. There's just so many different ways of doing them! Here's my first attempt.
