Sad Song

Sad Song was made right after Blue Flame. A quick sketch, a doodle, you name it. Again, I used Standard AE7 which is not suitable for drawing at all. And I used a notebook paper to draw on. Pardon the messy doodles on the back of the paper...

Cleaning was done with the same technique as I applied on Blue Flame; by adjusting Level.

As I learned my way of coloring on Blue Flame, I didn't touch bold colors (except for her gem earring). Super pale pink and beige were used on it, pink shade for her eyelid and lips, and white for those little flowers around her hair. It turned out darker here, though. The one saved in my PC is brighter.

Blue Flame

Okay, this is my last night's quick sketch. I did it with a very regular pen, Standard AE7, which is not suitable for drawing at all. As usual, I do anything related to doodling and artwork on the pieces of used paper, or some clean notebook-remain papers.

I can't really say this is a serious artwork like I used to create, and I didn't have something clear to draw at first. Perhaps I will just call it a doodle. Since I did it on a paper with lines on it, I thought I should do some massive cleaning, but then I decided to adjust the Level to lighten up the lines and keep it safe so my doodle would not messed up.

"Cleaning" was done in short time and I proceeded to coloring. This greyish color was put on as the base color (an accidental technique, honestly). Perhaps you can see how I liked those sketch lines that I can't cover them with bold colors yet...

But I wanted to color it (phew, such indecisive). And that flame background had been in my mind since I wanted to color. Actually I want to make her hair black as it was a bit inspired by the girl in movie "Tron" (I never really watched it, I just saw the ending scene on TV) but I really like those lines!!! That's why I keep it close to the base color. Furthermore, her eyes and wide smile was inspired from Rapunzel's from Tangled. Like I said, I didn't have something in mind to draw. This is one of those spontaneous art.
