This Instructable shows how I painted Sora illustration using watercolors,
please also watch the video of the painting process.
Step 1: Skin
First of all I paint a flat flash for the skin. After it dries I apply shadows on cheeks and eyes.
Step 2: Eyes
I paint a flat layer of blue for the eyes, and when it dries I apply another layer of darker blue and I add reflections with white paint.
Step 3: Hair
Hair requires several layer, a first one is painted with light ochra, the second one with burnt sienna and the last one with sepia.
I leave white spots for recreating reflections.
Step 4: Clothes
I paint clothes wet on dry, blending colors with a wet brush.
Indigo and black areas required 2-3 layers for achieving intense tones.
Step 5: Background
I painted clouds wet on dry, applying first pink and yellow colors. When paint dried I apply blue shadows.
