In the previous part we finished the sketch, now we’re going to add some ink and color.
Before I started inking I tweaked the hands a bit more: I noticed that the hands have 4 fingers instead of 5, so I used my own hand as an example as how that should look in the picture:
With the hand matching the orginal picture a bit better, I finished a rough fineliner pass over the sketch:
Then I made a beginning with some watercolors, adding the lighter/bright spots first and also adding a bit of shadow on the tree.
In the next part I’ll complete the colors and hopefully also all shadow parts.
