So I drew Scott in The Gek's flooded World. I made Pigger be in the reflection and placed The Gek in the background. This was gonna be a tiny little sketch but I ended up fleshing it out a lot more than expected! I also have been really liking playing around with blur effects recently in my stuff.
And it all started with this little doodle.
And then I cleaned up the lines.
I actually used the "Always use Pressure for Opacity" option for coloring. I just used varying pressures to change the color instead of using tons of different colors. I used one for the highlight and one for the shadows, but the rest was one color. I don't usually do shading this way, so it was interesting to blend in a different style.
I added in the front color for the water, so that the table looked like it was actually underwater.
I added more color to the background and made the water lines a lighter color. I also colored over Pigger so that it would look like a reflection.
I blurred out a bunch of elements to give it more depth. I also made the foreground a bit larger so it would frame the image better.
I added some water markings onto the couch to make it look like it went together better. I also added The Gek to the background in the sky.
And then I decided to move The Gek because he looked out of place and too big in that spot.
He STILL looked out of place, so I dimmed his color and added some fog over him. I also smudged the background a bit so the shapes weren't as sharp.
And that's the whole process!
