I wasn’t too happy with the first version of my painting of Marin Kitagawa, it just didn’t pop. I wanted Marin to glow because of the sunlight coming from the window. Aside from that, I also added a couple of more details around the whole painting.
They really put a lot of details with Marin’s measurements scene. The amount of movement in the animation is amazing. I really wanted to give this scene a try.
When I painted the background and Marin, I felt it was still a bit lacking. When Marin’s body and contours were to my liking, I started playing around with darker shadows and lighter areas to increase the contrast. When I was satisfied, I then added light beams coming from the window behind Marin. I did this with the sergeant brush then changed the layer to hard light.
I’m going to leave the painting as it is now, but I may come back to it at some point later.
