This was a picture I started on Valentine’s Day. It’s okay…’cause they’re not real. Anyway, I’m pretty happy with how it came out as a digital piece. I worked over traditional lineart first, but the lineart included their whole bodies, but when I was doing it in Painter and moved them down to the bottom of the canvas, everything got A LOT stronger. Then I worked really hard trying to establish a method for “shading” that added to the piece without taking away from the lines, which is why I settled for this somewhat unusual contour-style minimalist shading. Then I knew it needed a background and suddenly it occurred to me, HOW COME I don’t just add circles if they work so well in my traditional stuff?! SHA-ZAM.
I’m working on Wind-Running AGAIN and unfortunately I’m getting stuck in the same place I did in the second draft. I mean, it doesn’t help that I don’t have a lot of time for it, but I have some pretty important projects dangling right now (I haven’t touched Cadence since school started).
