Crows and Halftone

In my continuing experience with midtowns and color, I have unlisted the aid of some crows. My uncle was kind enough to photograph these crows at the beach.

I used a grey brush pen for the crows on the right, which gives the midtown a watercolor-feel. The crows on the left use a red brush pen that I manipulated as a solid block of color.

Going forward, I plan on using halftone dots in conjunction with other colors. Stay tuned!


Here are the original crows.


Coloring General Ursus


I wanted to share with y’all my coloring process. I recently drew and colored General Ursus. Here’s the original black and white line drawing:

What I should have done at this point is create a blank layer to sandwich between this and a duplicate layer, then multiplied the top layer (if you have questions about this process, feel free to ask in the comments section). But I was doing this for fun, so I colored directly on the line drawing! I know, I should be tried for war crimes, but I just wanted to get to the coloring!

I will color something else in the future and show my step by step process.
