As the whole world is trying to deal with the Corona Virus pandemic I felt I should at least make one piece about it. I just sketched some ideas and began painting as soon as I felt the idea was close enough. I really wanted to make another piece with ガしガし‘s style again. I was debating whether to make Corona’s image more closely related to the virus itself or make one up based on the name Corona. So I did the latter. Just after finishing it, I decided to add some saliva and dark shadows to Corona V.
Stay inside everyone, let’s end this virus together.
This is a colored version of the Inktober drawing I did on the 22nd day of 2019. I used the reference picture for the background and colors. I found it easier to simplify the colors. I guess that comes with experience huh. I was going to start painting it with Photoshop but the paint effects from Corel Painter are more my style. I really like the way they blend and react to one another.
This is a colored version of the first inktober piece of 2019. I was wondering what kind of coloring styles would work with a piece that has quite a bit of hatching. But first I wanted to come up with a background. Since this is a piece of myself I decided to make the background my studio. I wanted to work with a simple background but still keep the idea of what it’s supposed to be. I would say it’s like impressionism. It was quite fun trying to recreate my room and liked the way it came out. Now the next thing is trying to match the painting in the background. I decided to go with a simple painting style like that of anime. When I was done painting I noticed that the colors were much too vibrant and dark so I went and modified the colors and vibrancy in Photoshop. I quite like the way it came out.
