I finished up my piece for the Zutara calendar, but as usual I came across the same difficulties/frustrations that come with all my digital work: coloring.
It's really irritating. I look up tutorials, I do exercises, I try everything I can to improve my coloring but it always looks half assed and half hearted. It's frustrating because I put in hours and hours and hours into coloring, but the results always look as though I sloppily painted the piece in thirty minutes or so. I'm trying really hard, honestly, but I feel like that doesn't show through-- and that's what bugs me the most. I hate not showing progress or improvement in my work.
Good thing I chose to be a graphic designer instead of a professional illustrator :U That would've ended horribly...
