I'm in the process of taking my October doodles to a new level!
My intention for this particular illustration is to take my sketch and colorize it while keeping the looseness and playfulness of the original.
I start by working with my acrylic paints. I happen to like the white of the page and want to leave as much as I can.
The black boots and clothing of Captain Hook is working well as a frame for our little pirate and guides the viewer's focus directly to him. I decide to use a limited palette for a clean but sketchy feel. So here is the finished piece that started as a doodle-a-day for my October project.
