Palette Plotter (a Doodles & Drawings adventure) - video and end-product journal
I did a video, which ends in a bit of a cliff-hanger - to be resolved below.
Well, what didn't change after the video? I decided to simply redo the entire thing.
Twice. First I picked up that the Blob was probably subconciously made for being a wave/lightning-maker: a hollow fill style and all I had to do was stamp away. I also decided to go with full canvas coverage there.
For the in-between darker shades a solid fill circle prove quickest. I make sure to combine them into one big happy polygon using Multipoly: this way, I can grab them all in one go for colour edit (if desired).
Second time around, I left a gap between the water and edge of the cliffs. I wanted to add some nice foam patterns, and it turned out to be easier to work out the...uhm..negative negative spaces with the same colour and sheet as the rest of the water.
I am probably looking at treating myself to some "how to paint water" videos for the holidays or just the way water tends to behave. By and large I think I'm ready to move on to sort-of-dry-land.
