Sailor Venus Making Of

Hello everybody ^__^

Today i have some new intermediate stages ready for you of Sailor Vensu from
my Sailor Moon Fanart Series ;)

On the left side you can see the sketch. It is more worked out like i do usually,
but i tried to dive deeper into the volumes and shadows to see if the overall 
composition looks nice.  Then i worked with my light table to trace it onto
my Canson Montval Watercolor Paper. 

Here i put more contrast in certrain areas where lines come together!
it looks more realistic in the end and provides a better foundation for the
coloring. At the right side you can see the finished lineart. ^^

Now i'm ready to color. I usually begin with the skin because it's the easiest for
me and lets me get a deaper connection to the figure and the whole coloration.

Here you can see how i drew her hair. The Orange and the yellow give a nice
combination. It reminds me a bit of fire when i look at it. oO
I spare out highlights in certain areas. For the small or thin areas i use my
Dr. PH Martin Pen White later on, it is well covering and can be used like
ink. I love it ;)

While coloring i always concentrate on the color scheme. When you work on
one painting the whole time it can happen that you don't see mistakes any
more and loose the feeling what looks right or wrong. So it's also important to
take breaks to get your mind fresh and clear. :o
(For the eyes i have made some extra shots which will be uploaded in my
Eyes-Tutorial next week!!)  >_<'

Here you can see the last steps. The background was added 
with crayons, some retouching with pen white and setting additional
contrast in certain areas.

Goodbye summer - making of

Hello friends,
Today i have some intermediate steps for Aitheria my 
OC of the "Goodbye Summer" Theme.

This is the sketch of the illustration. I made it on normal copy paper with HB pencil cause 
later on i will use my light table to get a clean version of it. ^_^

This is the part where i .partially inked the whole character with Rohrer & Klingner
burnt Sienna Ink on Canson Montval Watercolor Paper.

I descided that the main concentration should be on the violin and the play with the
leaves so i choose a very high contrast to the character. :D

At last i have a little trick for you. Sometimes i work with the good old salt
on the areas wich are still wet to get nice color flows in the background.
The salt i use here is simple Effect Salt. You can get it in an average 
Drawing Shop.

After drying it should look like this. It is a very easy and nice
technique so just give it a try on your comming projects. ;)

Have fun
