SS2- Micro Project: Technique of Painting

After talking to the student illustrator about his work process, I picked up the same technique and applied it using my own method by applying it onto a screen grab I took from a movie, as the shot was matching the ambience of the first scene of my film.

Before the application of Yens technique, I tested out the method with a color palette test. In addition Figure 3 depicts my own technique which I usually practice for most paintings. In the end I decided to you the combination of both the techniques wherein I would use my regular painting approach(Fig 3) for the backgrounds and Yens approach (Fig 2) for my characters. Reason being, Yens approach of using color over a black & white layer enables the image to stand out in a more graphic style, which suits the mood of my story which is of a graphic novel theme.

into Black and White and then coloring over it using the technique I tested above using the purple monotones.
