Hello! I really admire the "painted" look of your art, and struggle with it a lot myself. Could you please do a tutorial or walkthrough of how you color your art as well as what brushes you use? Thank you so much!
Sorry if this is a lil short HA my coloring process is actually pretty simple!
I only use one brush for coloring!
I use photoshop so if you use any other program you could probably get the same effect if you use a brush thats capable of applying pen pressure to opacity. (I know clip studio has this function now, i think every other is just gonna be low opacity + constantly eyedropping)
I realize this looks like 1. draw the circle 2. draw the rest of the owl
but! I think of it like..actually painting irl lol…(thanks school)
Basically if its on a white bg, I usually add an ‘underpainting’ - usually a color I want to accent the main colors themselves.(changed it from yellow to red because didnt like yellow..)
Then using the aforementioned brush I just..color with the local color and continually ‘paint’ the color over the parts I want it to be. It’s basically that over and over with all the colors I use.
When it’s supposed to be a different color, I like painting the different color over the other to make some kinda gradient effect. Which u can see on the sleeves + hair predominantly. I also like to outline shaded areas just because.
Heres a closeup + gif which is kinda..poor quality whoops but you can get the jist of it. basically eye dropper the hell out of everything.
