Awake early this morning - 5am. Wanted to get straight into the digital painting. I first checked Reddit SketchDaily – Free Draw Friday. Fantastic – can just do a street scene.
I mashed together three drawings I did in Levin. This system of mashing drawings together is working out well – it’s allowing me to cover more ground and use the drawings that I may not have used otherwise.
The inking. I choose to use a brown over the black. It gives a more natural look over cartoonish. That’s what I want. Having the lines in the first place is wrong, but it’s been helpful for me to develop my work into more detail.
Gray-scale tone added. I used three brushes – two custom made flat brushes for the objects/sky and a vegetation texture brush for the vegetation (leafs). I should have added dark and texture to the sky. And color added.
