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.
