The perils of buying an accursed hat

Character drawn by hand, the background done in manga studio and the colouring in photoshop. I think I prefer colouring with real paint, I can't seem to get a nice texture when I colour digitally.


  1. One thing to try is to lay your colour in one layer, but have it slightly translucent, and then lay textures in the layer below, so they shine through a little bit. That way the colours don't look so flat. Gradients work quite well, too. Cool blog!

  2. Thanks. I'll try more colour layers, I've tried adding textures but it just seems to make everything look a bit fake and wierd.
