SWAT’s Alana (Revisted)

(Illustration Friday: “Safe”)

This sketch had been sitting in my “to color” folder for many, many months. Originally I wanted to use it, along with a few other heavily pencil shaded pieces, to simply practice coloring with. Well, last night was one of the first times I could make time to play in over two months. And that’s exactly what I did. Guilt-free no less.

I used brushes created from photographs of clouds for most of this. Texture was added using brushes created from scans of postage stamps and distressed cardboard. The overall color tone is a combination of color patches in PS CS2’s “Overlay” mode along with the “Photo Filter” feature.
