Kind of a massive image post; mostly due to being lazy in keeping track of my progress.
Inspiration to color this hit me the other day when I was hanging out with Justin, Andre, and Tong and everyone was doing a bit of show-and-tell. Since I've been drawing mostly to decompress after a day of work I've been sticking to areas I'm familiar with so I haven't been challenging myself. But after we hung out it kind of gave me this newfound sense of inspiration and motivation to try and color this. I feel incredibly rusty doing this, BTW.
Continuing on my sketch for looooo (man, remembering how many O's are in her name is hard!). I almost lost it on the details; it almost was a pain in the ass to do since there's a lot of stuff happening in that border print. Also there's the pressure on wanting to do a good job since this is her dream dress and all.
I keep losing steam with my previous WIPs and so I start doodling at a new one while in the middle of it. The second one I didn't bother to save at a higher resolution since it's just a bunch of my sketch lines; this way you can kind of see the general picture rather than the details (lack thereof). On the first one there's a lot of contrast with the black and white which doesn't give off a nice whipped cream feel, but when I lighten it up it feels pretty good. Still debating whether or not to add the drippy stuff; on one hand it creates some interest up at the top in where I feel I left too much white space but on the other I dunno if it just makes it look too cluttered and/or messy.
