Last week, Kasey Golden on YouTube posted a video where she used her Instagram colour palette to draw with.
Of course I had to copy her. So I popped off to the generator she used, ColorKuler. I was half expecting my palette to be a rainbow, so at first I was a little shocked by these muted tones.
But I suppose it was influenced by my many many robots.
As for what to draw, I’ve been doing lots of chibis recently. And I was inspired by the beautiful dress on this drawing of the goddess Artemis by Naomi Lord.
After I’d finished sketching I realised that my girl was going to look a little anemic since there’s no flesh colour in my palette really, but I think she looks pretty good.
Obviously I cheated a little when it came to the hue of the background, but we’ll pretend we didn’t notice that.
I’m really happy with the detail on her outfit and accessories. I need to do more intricate stuff in my art. And I’m super happy with how she looks because it was all done digitally. I did use a chibi pose reference from Pinterest, but other than that it’s all me. Don’t ya just love seeing your skills improve?
