Thought this bit from ‘The Little Engine That Couldn’t’ was pretty cute. :)

Hello! I was wondering how you do the technique combining your traditional sketches with your digital coloring, but keeping the sketch intact, leaving this aesthetically pleasing vibrant look to it. I was just curious

first things first i use Firealpaca for digital art, but i think this works for really anything with a multiply tool! 

SO first you get the picture of your traditional sketch opened up.
lighten the page while keeping the lines good n crispy with whatever your program can do that with if the lighting is wonky:

set the blending to Multiply on that layer

UNDER it, color on a normal layer! 

layers set to ‘overlay’ OVER the sketch layer gives brighter colors, but sometimes too bright so play with opacity until it’s just right. you can do multiple layers of that so things can be different brightnesses. same goes for the base layers under the multiplied layer

hope that helped!!

Au Naturel Lipstick

So, I wanted to make some lipstick and I got waaaaay too carried away with the swatches. There’s 112 swatches, almost any possible neutral for any possible skin tone and some slightly bright colors too!

@simloops I kept #34 and#135 just for you! They’re just not the same numbers anymore as I cut down on the amount of colors slightly.
