Wow, I thought I would never post a WIP again xD (it doesn't feel good to post a non finished work)
Although I want to make an exception this time.
is done by Sureya
an artist I've been following as long as I myself have been on dA.
She makes a ton of cute lineart drawings and works on various manga.
Every painting I make, I learn new things
I start off with a base color and some variations by using pen pressure and a random brush..
checking the greyscales for contrasting values so I'm making sure I don't have to redo stuff.
I've learned to directly start with a color. This makes it easier for me how it's going to look and what the focus of my image should be.
After that I just paint from dark to light. Square brush is my hero in all my works btw. Just a little tweaking with the transfer settings and I'm off to my own world
As for contrasting color I'm probably going to go for a salmon pink/orange on the tail.
Let me know what you guys think
