Week 2 - Progress 4; Background
As expected, Week 2 is taking longer than Week 1, and I'm fully okay with that. I'd hate to think every week's drawing would only take me four days. That would be boring. This time I stopped myself before getting to the figures again to keep a good pace. Often when I color by hand I eventually get bored and my work turns noticeably sloppy. I also usually start with the figures and work my way to the background, so perhaps changing that up will improve the quality over-all.
I think the texture on the tree and grass added a lot, really, though I realized while coloring that I have no idea where the light source will be. This is going to be a problem tomorrow when I start on the figures and shade the tree and grass accordingly. From behind Belle, maybe? All I know is that I really don't feel like putting them in shade. Guess I should have thought of that before sticking them under a tree.
Also, as promised, the Faberge egg I was working on, being displayed by my Ball Joint Doll, Logan.
