You know how sometimes you have to learn to run before you can walk? Well, my next picture:
is a total departure in terms of coloring from what I've done before. With the exception of a few small areas, this picture will be digitally painted like a real painting.
Instead of my previous ways of flood filling sections and adding shadows and highlights, I'm painting over the pencil sections a couple square inches at a time. I started tonight and after 3 hours, I've managed to get 4 flowers colored. Ow. What my goal is, is to have this look more like a traditional painting than digitially inked fan art and I want every square inch to have something special from Felecia DeGeorge (my fave fan made character, btw) to the sky and the city in the valley below. If I don't have any file crashes (again) this should take about a week, or two to finish.
I want to stop putting out a picture every few days just to say I did, but I'd rather have a picture good enough to be a Daily Deviation, at least.
One can dream, eh?
