Thoughts, Words, Works

Chloe recently got back to me to tell me that the keychain she's offered to make for me was finally done so that I'd be able to get it if I dropped by her Fanime 2009 artist table. We got to talking and I ended up asking her to draw the title character from Kemono no Souja Erin, because I think it's a decidedly underappreciated show and Erin's childhood innocence is a good fit for Chloe's art style. She drew this while we were still talking and I colored it a day later in the span of a few hours. I had fun drawing the background, and I'm really more satisifed with that than I am with the main work of the coloring itself. I tried doing most of the color on one layer to give it more of an intermingled look and I used some brush textures, but the result was not really as satisfying as I'd hoped. I think I'm going to try looking at some different tutorials to see if I can inspire some new techniques for myself.
