The Metal Garden by bezzalair The Metal Garden by bezzalair
A commission for :iconchibichise: of her two characters, Jyuno and D'mitri. I was free to draw them in whatever background I wanted, so I drew them in some sort of metal place... cause the characters looked kind of intimidating, so it just seemed to fit.

Sigh, I spent a while coloring the thing because I couldn't decide on the colors. I almost screwed up the picture pretty bad. ^^; You can't change colors as easily with traditional media (unless you're painting with acrylics or similar) like you can on a computer. Derp, derp.

*EDIT: Unhappy with color = color edits*


Artwork by me, Caylee
Jyuno and D'mitri are *ChibiChise's
(watercolors, white gel pen, a little of prisma colored pencils and photoshop edits.

Watercolor is a great choice for painting metaly looking things! Though I'm not sure where your concern with the color is o3o

I have this problem where I use the same color throughout the entire image, thinking that it should be reflective light off objects, and for shading, use a different, but same color (in this case, yellow for all the lighting and blue for all the shading). *sigh* I do this because I'd like for the image to sort of match, but the tactic just makes the image look confusing because of all the same colors. =\

Because the colors looked a bit similar in the original painting, I tweaked them a bit on the computer. ;__;

Hmm, so you mean in this case using yellow and blue without picking whatever color the object might actually be(say a rusty looking color for the pipes or maybe a redish color for the pots)?

:iconbezzalair:
bezzalair Featured By Owner Feb 6, 2012
No, I do have a base color throughout all the objects in the image. For the pots, I chose the brown/red rusty color, and then did my "thing" and highlighted it with yellow and shaded it with blue. =\ I'll get out of the habit one day... I hope. ^^;
