Hey everyone! I am @sketching, and today I worked on this single figure looking off to the left. I have been getting in the habit of making tons of layers which gives a lot of flexibility for editing, even if it can get somewhat confusing. I haven't used too many blending modes, but in this one I did use a Color Burn effect for the hair tendrils which creates an ethereal sort of effect. I also ended up using Burn on the background gradients, ending up with this very dark background that I think suits the piece fairly well.
I'm still most comfortable using mainly the smooth airbrush tool and a thin pencil or brush for the sketch parts. In this one I actually went in and cleaned up the sketch quite a lot and did an iterative sketch, so I hardly have anything left to show underneath, lol. I guess I should save that if I want to show it in the post. Anywho, that's about it for now! Thanks for visiting my blog.
