I only wanted to draw Mello in a yukata! ….but then I thought Children’s day was coming, up, so I’d draw him and Near. Then Near decided to get mouthy.
Haha, I don’t even know if yukatas are worn on Children’s day that was only an excuse.
I don’t like Mello in this boo hoo, his head is too big…and his arms are weird, but I wanted to show L, haha. I tried using the water tool a bit….it was interesting….I should try to use it a bit more. I used a lot of layers with this, more layers than I’ve used in a long time….. So sleepy! I really want to wear my yukata but it is still too cold, haha….
Oh man I have been terrible at updating here is a picture
So this is a picture of Mello – I only wanted to draw him with tall boots. I haven’t done a blending pic in a while, so I tried to do that, but I guess I’m rusty. I used a reddish brown color for lines/smearing, and then a yellow or blue underlay – that was new, trying to get different shades of colors by adding layers of different colors and letting them work themselves out. The blue was bright, but it worked with the red to dull itself for the pants and boots, etc…. and the yellow gave a different warmth to the skin and separated it from the coat, which was interesting (though I worry he looks jaundiced)…..
I’m still in the process of moving, which is stressing! But hopefully I’ll be able to get moved soon and can start drawing again…..
Mello’s getting communion….hmm. I liked this better as a sketch. The proportions are way off….I need to remember that the more realistic I try to make some things, the more it will highlight how unrealistic other things are. Ah well. I’m still afraid of using colors, hahah. I feel like I used so many colors, an made this so dark….but I really didn’t, haha…..
