In case anyone remembers last year’s gingerbread foray, well, here you find yourself again. Missed having Molly and Daisy around to deck the halls and sing along to Swingin’ Christmas Pandora with, but I did have a good time making a scripty situation for this round. Let’s go with, “all white for a more sophisticated look,” over, “it was 1 in the morning and I was over 13 hours deep in RoboFont, X-actos and cookie dough when I realized I didn’t have food coloring, and it was all or nothing at that point.”
you guys one of my favorite friends is super talented so just look like look here
I’ll show you how I colored my RG #2 cover!
I approached this similarly to how I did the Red Sonja one. Click the link if you’d like an in-depth explanation, but basically, I create different hue versions of the main flat colors, and use layer masks to create shades and highlights.
The first image was what I started with—the standard colors I use. I added some pink on her face and highlighted a couple areas before copying the layer three times. In this case, the original layer doesn’t show up in the final version.
Instead, I created dark blue, light green and light pink versions because I felt it would create a nighttime urban 80’s vibe. The dark layer was on the bottom and I used the green and pink as highlights above it.
This isn’t how I normally color, but it’s great when you want to use dramatic lighting, rather than use color to delineate objects from one another.
