Picture This: Mona&Su-Mi
An arc in a collaborated girl's love anthology, Picture This
So this started out as me randomly deciding Su-Mi
plays a Ukulele (because it's so underground LOL)
and wanting to sketch it
OBVIOUSLY IT DID NOT STAY A SKETCH.
But that's okay!
because I got to experiment with backgrounds and patterns and textures and-and THIS PIECE TURNED OUT PRETTY AWESOME.
YEAH I'M KINDA PROUD.
also I got this done in a day...I am feeling pretty good
yay for labor day weekend, now back to the work grind, LOL
this picture is when Monica first lays eyes on Su-Mi
If you know the reference of the title, congrats, you just gained some insight into Su-Mi's personality, and a bit of a cohesive theme in the M&S story
/begin technical jargon that you probably won't care about
I'm playing around a lot with Graphic design elements in PT as a general theme...a lot of typography and strong shapes with focus on the characters, bold lines, and patterns/textures.
such as seen below
*needs to stop plugging this picture omg*
In this piece, particularly, I was trying to keep things generally flat and designed, while still trying to give the environment depth using value changes and atmospheric perspective
I think it's working...and it definitely helped me get a better idea on how I want to tackle the backgrounds in the comic
gonna experiment with this some more!

Others in the PT Side B character illustration series:
One last little thing from me...
Thanks for all the support and notes from the last picture, I am feeling much better, and the issues are calming down for now.
The support is endlessly helpful, so thank you everyone
I may not have replied, but I always read all the comments <3
