I didn’t really have any plans when I started painting Terry. I just started painting forms so that I could play with the Real Tapered Wet Flat Brush. Again, I was amazed by how the strokes came out but sampling the colors was a pain. Of course the solution is to have a separate layer with the colors readily available off in some corner. I was thinking of adding some power effects to Terry’s punch but I think keeping it simple this time should be fine. I just wanted to focus on the pose and movement.
For today’s drawing/painting I decided to try out some of the inks that I created yesterday. Since I would only be doing the lineart with it and coloring it I went with the lightest ink I have. As for the style I went with LittleThunder‘s style and coloring since it is probably my favorite traditional art style. Today before I had begun today’s drawing I saw her latest art video of her painting one of her drawings. So with that in mind I went with a more simple and flat coloring style only adding some coloring in the skin and hair. I really love the way it came out. Although I have yet to try this coloring style with a background which of course would have a lot of variables that I would have to work with. But that will be for another work and day. I quite like the way the ink interacts with the copic markers.
I really liked the photo I used from Airi‘s instagram. It has a retro 80s-90s look which really fits with this coloring style.
