Hi cheryl, I like your character designs. very classic. how did you paint your characters? did u use value first then add color layer after?
also did you use texture for the costumes or painted it?
Hey there, I'm pretty sure these were started with simple values, then a colour layer on top and further painting over. The costumes were mostly painted from scratch, except for patterns like the one on Prof Plum's jacket.
Thanks so much cheryl. I will try this method. I think this much easier and accurate. than painting with color directly right?
It depends really, what's important is to find a method that works for you. The downside of adding a colour layer onto a value painting is that the colours have a tendency to turn out looking dead and artificial, without the temperature and colour shifts that we perceive in real life. I'd highly recommend painting over after, using the values + colour layer only as a starting point. Hope this helps!
thats true I notice my paintings are mostly saturated. Thanks for the tips. Do you have a patreon?
Nah I don't have a patreon
