Pufferfish Party: process


I don't normally work on final art digitally, but since getting a new tablet, I thought I'd start playing around with it. My daughter's first birthday is approaching, and it's the perfect time to try something new. Next time I play around I want to do it without the black outline - try to mimic my own gouache style instead.


This is the sketch - I don't usually create compositions this busy, but I thought I'd try something different on all levels.


This is a pic of the inked art - I used a copic multiliner. Thank you, Kathy Weller for recommending those beautiful pens!


This is a screenshot from the digital piece in progress - the colors were far more saturated and still mostly flat color fills.
