Oaxacan Coyote, Stages 10 & 11!

Stage 10

Polishing colors around the eye.

Comparison of finished coloring against scumbling only.
Rough scumbling layers added to muzzle.
With more scumbling, most of the white is eliminated.
Stage 11

Cleaning up the rib area.

Scumbling on rear hind leg. The surrounding blues are done.
I think scumbling may be one of my favorite artsy terms. It is a method of coloring using tightly controlled circular motions; it can be used with many types of media. By scumbling colors onto the paper, I am able to produce high saturation that covers all or most of the whiteness beneath.
