The next plan of action was to sketch in where the water would be falling. I looked at waterfall pictures and thought it would be something like this. Next time I would watch the direction of the splashed a little more but this works for now. I used a lighter color for this step and will bring in the darker colors later.
Here’s the darker colors I was talking about! I went all the way to the darkest color in the spectrum and then I’m going to work back to the lightest color. I wasn’t sure what I was doing at this point and was starting to get second guesses – I thought for sure I messed it up.
For the next couple of steps, the basic idea is to work from the darker colors into the lighter colors. I’m not going to worry about blending at this point and I just want to layer in the colors. I used colors from dark blue, gray to light blue and light turquoise.
The final step was to use the blender pen and the lightest colors to blend in all the layers. The lower part fades off but when I get that cut off it actually looks better. That’s the end of the tutorial – the next steps are the finish coloring the character and make a card… to be continued! But you can find the end of that story on my personal blog. 😀
