Timelaps of my last post. A little over three hours compressed into a minute.
To create texture, I’m using a stipple noise effect over a gradient and applying this as a mask to a solid fill. The leaves of the acacia were created using a custom art brush and the fern uses the blend tool and a lot of tinkering.
You can see a few glimpses of me grabbing references from Google. I usually bring in images to help me with colour and form. I do occasionally trace but only if i’m struggling to get the shape right. Tracing is a skill in itself and I find that it shows when I rely on it. I’d rather change the composition than trace.
So this is my first OC her name is Yoko Kobayashi. She comes from the Kobayashi family of powerful witches with a bad reputation of being evil and malicious but Yoko is different from her family. Yoko is a kind, sweet person who cares for her friends and is constantly worrying over them instead of using Magic for evil she wants to do good with it would love options and feedback I'm not 100% used to this art style but I'll get better at it 💕💕💕 #oc#originalcharacter#art#lineart#cute#witch#drawing#illustration#illustrator
