And I FINALLY remember EXACTLY why I HATE coloring on computer paper….besides the fact that it’s almost impossible to blend oil-based colored pencils on such thin paper…
I had forgotten that I can’t scan pictures done on computer paper because the scanner kills the colors…so I have to rely on taking a picture of my picture using a camera.
Which isn’t too much of an issue…except for the fact that this picture is more than 11 inches length wise…
I literally must have spent 3 hours trying to figure out lighting, how to position the picture and the camera, and fixing color issues on Photoshop. Ughhh seriously what a pain traditional art is sometimes…
Even after all the touch-ups, this picture still looks nothing like the real version, and I find it such a shame that I can’t properly show you guys what it really looks like. I’m sorry
In case anyone is wondering why Hiccup’s skin is….pretty tan I guess you can say, it’s because I figured that since he’s a cop that works in the field, he’s in the sun quite a bit, so he gets a nice yummy tan. *bricked*
Yeah, just wanted to say that hahaha.
Now, onward to Hijack Week’s July prompt…. This time if I’m doing it traditionally, I’m not going to do it on computer paper jesus.
