Tomoko and Yū Wink

This is a colored version of the 10th day piece for Inktober 2019. I really like the relationship between Tomoko and Yū. I also love the way it has developed throughout the story. Originally this piece was supposed to be taking place in autumn, but since we are now in winter I decided to put them in a snowy scenery. This piece was painted with Corel Painter.

There are three versions. One “clean”, one with warm breath and one with snow (plus the warm breath). I don’t know how to post them here since they tend to get taken off when posted here. If you click the picture it will take you to Pixiv where you can see all three versions.

Or actually here is a preview from twitter (sadly the previews aren’t full sized).

Because I’m not popular I will get possessed

I thought that I had uploaded the process for this piece when it was only a drawing. But maybe not, I couldn’t really find it. In any case this is the final painting which was first drawn traditionally then painted over with Photoshop. Traditional X Digital. This is going to be a long post… Hope you enjoy (๑ ˊ͈ ᐞ ˋ͈ )ƅ̋

The original drawing was made quite a while ago but I don’t remember when exactly. Looking at the picture properties it says it was on May of this year but I’m pretty sure it was at the very least done last year… In any case I was thinking of doing it traditionally but cleaning it wouldn’t be enough to erase my mistaken lines. So I decided to hold off till I could paint it digitally in a competent way.

This is the line art (which I later had to clean digitally… that took a while (๑⁺᷄д⁺᷅๑)◞՞):

I wanted to use this color scheme at first, but did use it for inspiration over all.

So with the drawing done, finally after so many … months… here is the color process:

So at this point I remembered and figured it would be as good time as any to finally fix Yuu chan who I drew too big. If I remember correctly this was one of the reasons I decided to paint it digitally.
