Here’s a quick look at what my process looks like nowadays! I really only use the default pen settings in sai and the air brush for most of my coloring. Once everything’s merged, I use this brush:

to fix up some shapes which I definitely see better once all the colors are laid out. As for color palettes/theory, that’s still something I’m figuring out for myself, but don’t be afraid to rely on photos/pre-existing color palettes to test the waters!


to reaffirm for myself that there are visually-pleasing things in tf2 besides yaoi-handed men, I tried doing some speedpaints of map background scenery. from top to bottom, barnblitz, pipeline and lakeside. i might do more of these in future as they were surprisingly relaxing and a good diversion from my usual content
