I like how this bright and colorful illustration turned out. I wanted to give it a “morning feel” so I used a warm color palette for the cat and cooler colors for the background to create a contrast.

I always start with the line art and choose a background color. I then add some colors with abstract brushes and create some lightning. I sculpt the main subject, still using abstract brushes and add more colors while paying attention to the lightning and keeping in mind the general feel I want to give the painting. In the end, it’s always different than what I had in mind when I started but I usually like it. I add details and I remove the line art. I do some color correction, usually adding more contrast and vibrancy. Then, I add details again and correct some lines, and ta-da! Painting done!
