Sketch, Ideas

Working on the first image in my head.

Sketch, Ideas

The first image didn't really call out to me, and so I sketched some more. They say that to really want to do something, you have to make that piece your own thing. So I drew two people that I had in mind, thought "spring", which led to flowers blooming, love, pleasantries, and drew this with that thought in mind.

Sketch, Lineart, Cleanup

Cleaning up linework.

Line Art, Lineart

View of the linework without the sketch lines.

Line Art, Lineart

Blocking in Ryan now, and I'm realizing that I think *A LOT* before I work on stuff. Still undecided on what he's wearing. ><;

Line Art, Lineart

Just a view of the lineart so far without the sketch lines. I'm learning a lot about my own processes (stuff I only vaguely observed) than ever before, such as, I'm slower than I thought! xD

Line Art, Lineart

Pushed myself a bit more, clothed Ryan and placed the borders and so on. Still not sure what flowers to put on here... eh.

Final Lineart, Lineart, Line Art, Final

Had a bit of trouble with the flowers at the bottom, but here's the final lineart.

Color Stage 1

Starting the coloring. They're both rather pale people (well, Ryan's just... white, really) so it was a small challenge to just not make them be.. white. xD haha.

Coloring, Color

A half-step. It was busy today outside of drawing stuff, and I found myself lacking time. Thinking very carefully how to proceed at this point, mostly because Ryan's coat is dark colored, then there's Ame's dress, and the flowers... etc, etc.... It's hard since... well this is as much their skin/hair coloring will go, for now. Ryan's hair is white... and I'm wondering if I made the right choice for this, haha...ha.... ahhh... ><;

Coloring, Color

I finished the clothes, and the hair... and I'm debating if the texture on the hair is too much? I changed the brush I used for the clothes because I thought that doing so would -really- be too much... moving on...

Finish, Final, Finished Piece

Here is the final piece. I got stuck after I finished coloring, and asked a friend for some input...something that I do when I get stuck. I just felt that it needed something more. She pointed out something that I glanced over, and promptly fixed it, along with adding things. C: I'm really happy with it now! :D
