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
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. ;)
