So, I decided to try two things today. One, a drawing from a reference. Two, using three colors (the primary colors) and seeing what I could mix.
Here’s my reference (thanks Google and The B in Apartment 23…which I highly recommend, great show) (also, look how lazy I am, didn’t even bother to cut the top off):
Preliminary sketch I didn’t even try to fix:
Added layer of yellow:
Added layer of red:
Added a layer of blue:
Realized I forgot to color her shirt:
Layer of yellow on shirt:
Added some fix up colors???:
Lazy background and ink:
Yay! I did something! I just love the idea that if you have the three primary colors, you can just make all the other colors. It’s very exciting.
