Yami and Ryoko:
This is for Last Sin's Contest, [link]
. You had to draw a picture with Winry with Ed or Al in a Christmasy background. Of course, we chose Edward. We barely made the deadline since Yami became sick and couldn't finish editing her part and coloring the picture. You can use your own imagination to figure out what's happening/happened in the picture.
Yami drew Edward and the snowman and Ryoko drew Winry and her house in the background. That house required a lot of editing on Comic Works. Ryoko took a picture of Yami for the correct body positioning of Ed.
The background was done in color pencils and white ink. The white ink is too make it appear their body's are slightly in the snow. The blue color pencils were used for shadow and tried to add depth to footprints in the snow.
We also tried to make them have "dragon's breath" as we always used to call it. You know when you can see one's breath when it's real cold out. That was done with white pencils and white ink.
Take notice of the snowman and what he is wearing.
I think this turned out well and the bg was fun to do!
White ink, color pencils, copic markers, Comic Works, Copic ink pens, reference photos for coats and for pose, scanner, printer, and ruler. Oh and tissues (for my running nose.)
