more progress, plus a close-up
wow it is a good thing she gave us a week extension because this is taking me forever
Process! ‘cause I don’t do enough of those. This was a little easier to document since everything’s on it’s own layer.
Original lineart > flats > gradient wash > shading > colored lineart + another gradient wash
gradient washes are my secret to making even the most heinous of color schemes palatable.
(I might slap on a background later, and maybe change up the lighting since that’s still really close to the original. It wasn’t a conscious decision, that just seemed like the best place to put the light source. I guess that’s why it was like that in the first place blah blah blah I talk too much.)
EDIT: uhhh if it doesn’t work try opening the image in a new tab or something o_o
just finished resting up from finals so I’ve been making progress on wonderlandstuck
I added something of a background and also base colors. Whenever I draw like this (less painterly, more cartoonish) I like to fill characters up with one solid color, usually something that really contrasts my background. I do the actual coloration on a layer above it with a clipping mask. This way I make sure that I stay completely within the lines, but more importantly I get a sense of their silhouettes to see how my composition is working so far.
Looks like I’ve still got a lot of anatomy tweaking to do though.
supposed to be writing my paper and I accidentally homestucked because bad procrastination begets good art (or at least good inspiration)
But yea what with all the not-so-subtle Wonderland reference in the comic lately, I couldn’t resist doing a big illustration. Especially after I saw this post, but also because Alice in Wonderland is my most favorite thing ever. Jake as the March Hare is a bit of a stretch, but I’ll take what I can get.
Anyway it was nice to do lines but I am not letting myself touch this again until after I finish my paper. HAHAHA I’M SUCH A TEASE ALWAYS POSTING IN-PROGRESS STUFF BUT NEVER FINISHING ANYTHING…
