Oaxacan Big Cat, Stage 2!

^ Spiral pattern begun on neck using impressed lines with a stylus.


^ Impressed lines - colored over with the pencils - create a fun pattern.


^ Neck colored solid to help break up the patterns.


^ Pattern surrounding the neck and chest begun. I start off with short, circular strokes to "prime" each area, then build up color layer by layer, often with complements.


^ Primed area around impressed lines.


^ Fully layered area of solid color.


^ Shout-out to my color wheel; it reminds me of which complements to use for each color, and of different color schemes.


^ Pattern surrounding neck and chest complete! This area was particularly fun to color.


^ Closeup of the finished area.


^ Pulling back to show finished chest area.


^ Closeup of the finished neck and chest area together.


Stage 2, showing the progression on the neck and chest.
