Work-in-progress shots of a background for Halley's commission! D-did I really make this?! Too bad it's going to be mostly covered up by our characters later…

I think I must have tried channeling Lisa while painting this, haha. Always an inspiration to not be afraid and keep going!

Progress shots of my Day 032 entry for Doodle a Day.

Completely eyeballed, picked my own colors (no color picking from the reference image.) I usually quickly sketch a few horizontal and vertical guides for both the reference and my work so I can gauge space, but this time I wanted to see if I could do without them. :)

Thus, it shows I still have trouble laying down proportions when I begin a piece. Digital art allows me to practice by allowing me to easily fix my mistakes should I spot them mid-way into a piece, which is usually the case. If I had done this in acrylic or oil paint, I would have used up the whole tubes just correcting my major errors. ;P

Not shown here: I often flip my canvas and reference image horizontally so I can spot errors more easily.

The interesting thing is whatever skills I pick up here, I’m able to translate into traditional media. The end goal is to get good enough at getting it down on the first try to be less dependent on these tools, of course. :)

Tip: Always zoom out of a piece every once in a while to check if everything’s still in proportion. Or, do it how I accidentally figured out I messed up: take a screenshot, step away from the screen for a while, then come back and look at the TINY thumbnail of your screencap. BOOM! Major errors in plain sight. :D

Draw with hot passion, edit in cold blood. :))

Hooray for practice. :) Progress shots plus finished product. The in-progress ones always look so hilarious until I finally figure out how to fix them. :P
