Art Beach Commission colours

Recommended Posts

Had some trouble with the PSD files so ended up colouring this multiple times, that was frustrating but it's finally finished. Totally cell coloured style, I usually mix a bit of gradient or something with sky and so forth but decided to keep it all perfectly consistant for this one.

The greyscale tone reference I did before the colouring seems to have some charm, some of which I don't think transferred over to the completed coloured version.

With the colour flats I didn't notice but now with the completed image I'm wondering whether I should have made the flowers a different colour to cut down on the abundant blue/green in the image a bit. The character colours were all decided by the client but I had free reign over the background and environment, what do you think?

[SIZE="1"]Personally I like the abundant blue and green, but thats because those are my favorite colors. I don't really like the shade of green you used for the sky however, because it looks as if a storm is coming in. Although it does fit the characters expression.[/SIZE]

A little dash of orange in the flowers would help pull this together into something a little strong than it is right now.

It's neat to see the tone study, too.[/FONT]
