Another preview for this new project. I'll be unveiling it officially sometime in this next month, so stay tuned! This pinterest board gives you a clue to some of the inspiration I'm using.
I very rarely do this. Usually I have some idea of the color scheme when I do a sketch. The colors and mood of a piece are tied into the concept for me most of the time. But for this particular one I was really stuck on the colors, so after scanning in the sketch, I reduced it to a thumbnail size, and tried a few options in photoshop. After settling onto this green/blue palette, I'm starting the painting, loosely following the color choices I decided on digitally.
