I followed the sketch pretty closely when doing the lines, leaving out some of the background detail that I plan on adding back in the color stage. I also simplified the tree in the center to make it less distracting.
Some color tests to get the feel of the place! Just basic colors and light directions, I plan on adding reflections to the water later. I ended up going with the far left one.
Blocking out the colors, added in some tree shapes in the background to give it a little more depth.
Shadows for the foreground pieces! I put some stripes on the bathtub to try and make it look a little more metallic. I also decided on a general light source coming from the left. It's a purple-ish color set on multiply.
Light! This is a yellow gradient from the left, in addition to sharp highlights on the trees to bring out the bark patterns, both set on overlay.
I felt like the sword was getting a little lost due to the lighting and the background. I added in these rays to draw more attention to it. Also added some reflective detail to the water.
