Busy week this week put I have still made time to finish this pic… which I intended to have done by the release date. This is the first double page spread in Johanna Basford’s Magical Jungle. Coloured with FC Polychromos and Prismacolors. I decided to do a bit of a light gradient with the waterfall in the sunlight and the elephant hidden behind the shadow of the cliff face. I decided to colour all the leaves in as many different ways as I could think of. I decided to add texture to the cliffs around the waterfall as they looked a bit too flat and featureless for me. I’m really looking forward to seeing what other people come up with colouring this picture. 🙂
About the colouring competition gallery. I need my hubby’s help to update it with the missing pictures so I it will be done this weekend. (Tried it myself and got completely confused… I’m glad I have him to help me with the technical bits.) The third part of the Jellyfish tutorial is still being edited. We hope to have it up next week so we can move on to the next tutorial.
