Practice with more colors and illusions
Archive for March, 2011
This amazing video shows a digital painting by pixiv artist AG+ took a year to make. Not only is the composition amazing, but the color choices and placement of characters is phenomenal. Whether you are a Zelda fan or not, you can’t deny how amazing this piece is.
I started this project thinking I wanted to do color contrasts, so I decided to do saturation contrast. I used photoshop to color the piece after inking the drawing, then I switched the color palettes for each girl to contrast with the others. Each piece has a color that is used in another piece, so that they can tie together. I honestly just had to experiment a lot with the color choices for each one. In the end I came up with what I’d like to call a powerpuff girl color scheme. They are each monochromatic with a analogous color dispersed throughout.
Overall I had fun with it, It was fun drawing practice and an interesting way to look at color.
