|Lance and Red Lion in Painter12|
Anyway to help really push color, I also stopped painting in my gray scale style completely and simply did color thumbnails without my wacom tablet of what looked good from far away. I actually used my fingers on my Apple track pad. I was on vacation near Seattle and didn't plan on working on Voltron stuff, but I found time and did what I could. I'm pretty happy that I didnt have my Wacom because it forced me to work on only the core of the painting. Once back in the midwest I started to really develop the painting into what we see here. I figure not everything has to have that crisp look and sometimes a raw feeling can be used for visual interest. Hard edges, soft edges, and lost edges are all things I tried to remember as I painted this.
I hope you all enjoy how these are all going to look. I'm really trying to make these into memorable paintings!
