Anonymous said: Do you sell prints? :)
not at the moment, sorry! i don’t think i draw large enough to make high quality prints, and i’m not sure if i have enough print-worthy stuff to set up a shop or anything like that. maybe sometime in the future if i can get my act together..

an anon wanted me to show how i color my stuff and so here’s some progress shots.
i use photoshop for all of my digital stuff these days, and i’ve gotten into the habit of using overlay layers for coloring paintings. a lot of it is just fiddling around with different layer opacities and hue/saturation. i wanted to go for something warm and a bit…seductive? so that’s why i ended up choosing a lot of yellow and some red for the overlays. i tried my best to keep the heads illuminated because that’s where i wanted the focus of the painting to be.
usually after i set my flats down i do some more painting on an entirely new layer on top of everything but for this one i only did minor tweaks here and there.
i guess for advice on choosing colors to overlay or multiply i’d recommend using saturated colors sparingly or setting the saturated layer on low opacity. though it really depends a lot about what context the colors are in and what mood you want to set…i might elaborate on this more later, but for now my biggest piece of advice is just to play around with different layer modes and opacities until you get something you like.
i know this probably isn’t the most helpful thing to figure out how to color stuff but i hope you guys got something out of it! if you have any specific questions you can message me and i’ll try to explain it to the best of my ability.
