A Splash of Color


The Wizard’s Apprentice

After completing both a more refined line work and grey scale values, I merged my work into a single layer, created a layer on top of that in Overlay mode and began coloring on top of the grey scale.  I used the Mixer Brush on the lower robe on the bottom left just to test out how it would blend the colors and I liked how it turned out, so I decided when I zoomed in (the image is at 25% zoom right now, I’ll do details at 50%) and started doing details next time, I’d continue using that approach.

Also, as you might have already guessed I flipped the image horizontally (also widening it an inch or so).  I did this after flipping the canvas to check for symmetry issues and other errors, but ended up keeping it like this.

Tomorrow I’ll start getting into details and look at some issues that come up, but for now I’m really satisfied with how everything has turned out.
