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.
This was a piece I started last year around June of 2019. I gave up when I couldn’t work out the background. But after doing a couple of pieces using Ranma’s backgrounds for references, I felt more comfortable. There are still areas in the background that can be made better, and the muscles can be defined more with a mixture of hatching and painting but I wanted to give a simple painting style that can be seen in an old anime from the late 80s or 90s. At first was thinking of putting him in a neighborhood but decided to have him walking on a lone road towards South town. I limited myself to three colors for each section of Terry. I could add more details if I added one more color level but I really wanted to see how it would look if I limited myself to just three.
