In order to achieve this I decided, instead of aiming for a digital painting that resembled the final product of my painting style, I would employ my own painting techniques and processes in a digital format and experiment.
|Original base drawing|
|Mixed edges to create a matte background.|
(Similar effect as if applying water to pastel drawing).
|Built up layers of colour focusing on areas of colour,|
rather than the orignal drawing.
Final step: Drawing back into the image to add definition.
