Happy Saint John the Baptist day All!
I've had this Clip Studio Paint program for a while and it's weird I'm only exploring it's capability now. So I just learned how to do masks. I had just watched a tutorial from my google feed that made sense to me: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ky_F9_mD4dY before I was just coloring over color, trying my best to not overlap colors. With masks that is just not a problem anymore!
The background I used mixed media. I inked it in pencil and used the water color to blend in the colors. As a post edit I added some white scratches using the pencil tool. I followed Mark Crilley for a while, and he always enjoyed mixing his media, so I was thinking of him when I did that. The foreground I used the stock g-pen and opaque water color.
The nice thing about masks is that you can section things out easier. I don't know if it makes things faster, but it definitely helps you stay more organized.
The ironic thing is I learned how to use masks in a time when we need to use masks. :)
The blue lady's hairdo changed a bit because I forgot I changed her hair. I've decided to use onenote to store all my reference photos, so now I can do a side by side with clipstudio on the left of my acreen and one note and my reference photos on the left. Hopefully things'll be more consistent now.
I like using onenote because it is searchable.
Not much to say about the story, the blue lady is just baby talking he dinosaur…. fun.
