Lesson1 How to catch your fly by demiveemon Lesson1 How to catch your fly by demiveemon
Finally the color version is done. This picture felt very different to the previous ones due to the special light and it's killed of every last one of my nerves. xD;;;

Now I'm looking forward to a few days rest from painting anything pink. Seriously, I've felt colorblinded while working on some parts and areas. x___X

Hope you like it and I'm happy to hear your opinions.

Ohh, this one is the best! Must be the colors you chose, they work perfectly. Plus I like how those frogs add comedy value to the picture. ^_^

I'm happy to hear that. I had a hard time getting the colors right and it was rather straining to work with very similar colors. xD

Great work on soft evening colors! And I like this type of humor that makes everything seem amusing. Although the frog and the fish would probably beg to disagree. :D

Thank you! THe coloration felt very taxing on the eyes while working on it, but I really like how it came out. Especially the colors in the water as they provided a nice break from pink tones. XD
I bet its Rocky's biggest catch ever, although he was aiming for that fly that's flying through the picture.

Very welcome! Did it take you a lot of time to find the right color?

I remember that I redid the water at least once, but that was towards the end of the coloration. I also tried out a different way of coloring that time (I had a dark blue layer with a low opacity setting). Probably did some changes along the way. As I'm sur you know, when working on a bright,  white background, colors tend to look different compared to what they look like once there's less blinding white. So I usually end up fiddling around with colors.

Exactly! It's really not easy to find suitable colors, but when you finally manage to find one, it feels so good. :D

It does indeed. Now I've gotten used to having a background layer with a darker color in the background that I can turn on and off when I feel that the color I'm working on get's too close to the background. It's very useful to spot where you've gotten outside of the outlines as well. Another technique that I'm not using all too often (sadly, it really helps) is doing the background first. xD
