Next, I add yellow-orange shadows and a slightly lighter yellow highlight to the beaks and eyes and also rough in the irises. Using the same colors I flesh out the sun and the flames around it using more reds and oranges.
Now it's time to cut in around all of that yellow with the sky. I'll save the birds until I get near the end of the job. As you guys familiar with my work know, I paint in a very cartoony style with lots of visible brushstrokes and bright colors, and this piece is no exception!
And here's the sky all painted!
Next we move onto the clouds. I used white, light grays, and purples. The tentacles on the legs are gonna be purple, so I wanted a little purple somewhere else on the piece.
Now a few more white highlights on the clouds...
Up next is the pie tin! And since I had the grays all mixed, I figured I may as well paint the skull and bones on the little pirate flag.
Now it's time for the pie...
|Looks yummy, right?|
And finally the mast and the rudder!
That's all for this round! Next time we'll get started on the water and the tentacles and see how far we can get with the rest of it! Hope you're all doing well!
