Nina and I have done it again! This time we did a St Patrick’s theme, and used the colours of the Irish flag as our palette (apart from character’s hair/eyes etc).
Despite having had an idea for what I wanted to draw while I was still drawing the Valentine’s piece, I completely forgot about this. My excuse is that I’ve been sick with a cold – I’m a big baby when I get sick.
So when Nina messaged me on the evening of the 16th to let me know she was ready to swap line art, I was a little bit surprised. I got something done, but it isn’t my best work. I do think he looks kinda cute though. This is Nina’s character Ernest, who is a main character in her comic Second Chance.
Nina drew my character Wren enjoying a drink.
I coloured her in digitally, and took advantage of the fact that brown is a dark shade of orange. It’s not cheating!
And what did Nina do with the line art I drew? She did an amazing job, naturally. She used just three colours (and layer modes) to make a rainbow!
