Wanderer by Lhuin Wanderer by Lhuin
The picture I did on the stream last night! Was a lot of fun :D even though cat kept attacking the camera hahahfdg.

I have to confess though, I've never had as much trouble with colouring a picture. Or it wasn't really difficult, but I just couldn't decide the colours and tried so many things and either liked all of them or disliked them. Originally it was all orange, then I added some blue but it ended up looking like purple again and then I wanted to make it greenish/orange with cold shadows and warm light source and to make the orange monarch butterflies really pop.
I always seem to go for purple so was trying to break away from that and using it too much/relying on it. Even one of my teachers say I use a lot of purple and I didn't even notice it fully until she said it : D
If there's any purple in this piece it's not intentional, I didn't use the colour but some layers with different effects might have created that.
Oh well I tried! XD trying to stay away from purple for a while anyway. Also tried to make it look like it could be coloured in watercolour etc.

This is kind of a remake of a really old picture of mine I did when I was 15, some might remember it if you watched my previous account. :D been 7 years oh my....
The title comes from the nickname of the monarch butterfly, thought it was fitting for this piece :)

Drawn in pencil, coloured in Photoshop.

Putting this in the Traditional artwork category as most of the time I spent on this was traditional media (maybe about 6 hours) and the digital colouring took a lot less time than that. I remember reading that as a rule of thumb the part that took longer should be the category, but it's difficult when you combine both.
