Last week, I posted a sketch and a preliminary inking of Izaak as The Child (aka Baby Yoda)
Starting with the shaded ink layer I did last week, I changed it from black to blue-green and did a second, cleaner ink layer.
The whiskers and eyeshine are actually on their own layer. I really like having the whiskers as a separate layer from the rest of the drawing. There’s also a slight outer glow on this layer.
Using the clean ink version, I made a flat colour layer. This layer is about 70% opaque.
Using the same colours, and following the shading done on the first ink, I added a texture layer, with the fur and ticking and the rough cloth of the robe.
The background is a combination of the original screenshot I based my drawing on, and a painted background using bark and grass brushes, run through the oil painting filter.
I also added a shadow and backlighting, to capture the feel of the original scene.
One final, tiny touch: I have a set of steam/smoke brushes. One little stamp at 60% opacity, and…the bone broth is hot!
And here is the final, complete drawing. I am pretty proud of this one!
