As were getting closer to Christmas I felt that I should make some paintings to fit the season. At this point painting Fubuki and Tatsumaki has become somewhat a tradition so why not continue. I didn’t have a plan starting out but it eventually morphed into the sisters sitting in a staircase. I had the idea of having hats/ head pieces but decided to paint them at the end. This worked out well because I could have two versions, one wearing hats and one without.
Here is the painted version of this drawing. I’ve been watching Hilda lately and wanted to try out a muted, I would even say pastel colored painting style. I really liked the way it came out. Using only one type of color and multiply to make the shadows really speeds up the process of shading and leave a really uniform and clean look. No wonder people use it. ReZero was great this season, was quite an emotional one. Specially after what had happened last season. Can’t wait till the second part of this season is finally released. In the meantime here is a happy break from all that suffering. They all deserve it.
Here is the start of a new painting for this year’s Christmas. I wonder how many I will be able to do before the 25th? It seems like I’m having less trouble just drawing what I have in mind so the process is much quicker. I actually had this thought last night before I went to sleep. Luckily I still remembered it today.
Was actually planning on painting it today but I had some obligations I had to do today so only the lineart will be done today.
I was a bit scared I wasn’t going to be able to make it this year, and to think I was thinking about making two pieces for today…
I am a bit surprised at how quick I was able to finish it in three days (I usually take a week). I was struggling deciding on the colors and the style I would use. When it comes to watercolors I really love Little Thunder‘s art style. I wanted to emulate it but I always end up doing it a bit different. I have to paint more so that it all becomes a natural process.
