Fairy Tail author Hiro Mashima had a new treat for Twitter follows this week, a look into his work coloring one of sketches.
He starts with he sketch, with light blue guide lines added
He turns that off in his color mixer
He then figures out the colors that he wants to use in the image, working on how to represent the black dress
He then shades the skin
Next it's the hightlights and shadows on the hair
Though rough work, the finished sketch is still impressive
A few other sketches...
trying out a wrong hair style
