Rainbow Mushrooms (digital art, coloring)

An ending to the mushrooms I was working on yesterday. After struggling for hours with “natural” tones of the mushrooms, in white, brown, and gray, I rebelled and made them rainbow-colored.

The line art from yesterday's session. Note the color being applied, it is a warm beige; it was sampled from an actual mushroom image.

More coloration, using a warmer color as a base. A lot like with painting -- using burnt sienna as an underlayer.

Nearing the end of my rebellion with color, here is the rainbow theme.

This was a fun exercise, and I learned a lot, especially about the inner workings of Sketchbook Pro. I got more familiar with the behaviors of the brushes, and how to merge and separate layers to make the coloring process more forward-moving and less tripping over myself. The splatter-dot brush was entertaining and gave me a lot of texture in this image that I wouldn’t have had otherwise. I look forward to learning even more!

  2. Like, psychedelic, man! An’ like fa-ar out, an’ stuff.

    1960s. Took me immediately back to the 60s.

    Love the colors, AND the detail! Like to know if you made all those intricate lines with the mouse, or somehow with a pen of sorts. I think you may have told me already how the thing works – but, like, I’m like, old. Re-eally old, so I forget stuff easily.

    An’ things.
