Going back to Oz - Flying Monkeys 02
Good color mixes for this, I was really happy how the paint came out. But, uh-oh, I forgot my plan, and messed something up. I had meant to have the red of the lips painted in first, since the bottom lips on both meet up against the black, I was just going to carry the spray over from one lapel to the other, and hit the lips in the middle. I did not do that, I put in the blues first, and filled in the whole head.
Whoops. So I went over it a little bit with the red, and tried to avoid creating a purple, and hope for the best with the pencils.
Look out! Flying Monkeys! Creepy little buggers...
Again, as these are smaller background characters, I was a little looser with the pencil rendering, going for a bit more of 'representational energy,' than smooth subtlety.
So that's that for the monkeys, paint and pencil colors cataloged and set for the final piece.
