Part of the reason I’ve been so slow on art lately is because I’ve been trying to work on a new coloring technique. I have heard tales of some brand of sorcery that involves creating an image in grayscale and then using an overlay layer to add color to it, which is what I had intended to do for this picture. However - and perhaps this stems from my lack of understanding on the subject - the problem I kept running into was that this method had the effect of making the picture look as though it was shaded purely with black and white. This typically makes the final image look desaturated, so I’m not a huge fan of it. Eventually, after having gotten frustrated with the results, I said screw it and reverted back to my original method of using Shade/Luminosity layers for the shading, resolving to do some more research on it and try again on a later date. If you have any advice on this issue, feel free to contribute - I’m more than willing to listen.
So, yeah. All in all, this didn’t go quite as planned. But whatever, at least I got to draw Soarin’.
yep still 800% gay for this horse
