The past couple days I’ve created this relaxing scene of Xavian with his friends enjoying the sunset. At first, the picture was only going to have Xavian in it. However, I decided to add more characters in the background to create more depth and to showcase Xavian’s friends interacting with each other.
In the background, Rita is chasing Duke for stealing one of her earrings. Duke is known to play pranks on people but especially Rita because of her short temper. Nia is seen laying in the tree behind Xavian because he snores too loud for her and she likes quiet.
Below are the many steps it took to reach this product.
Step 5 (This will be when the picture is ready for print)
Three straight days of live stream coloring of Boritta and I believe I’m 80 to 85% done with this poster. The hardest part has already been done and all tha’s left is the few touch ups. The hardest of the poster was getting the sunset correct and getting the different shades of colors. Plus coloring the river underneath Boritta and creating a small purple glow. She has the most colors out of the other four poster and the longest rendering process. Which means slower save time. But I enjoy coloring Boritta and it shows. Let me know what you think!
Had a good live stream and got a lot done last night. Here is where I’m at on the Boritta poster. At 9PM today I will be doing another live stream to work on the landscape. I’ll be shading in the vines, branches, leaves, and trunks. Let me know what you think of this piece.
Shockingly enough just putting down the flat/base colors down for Boritta took over 3 hours to do! I enjoyed it though, so I’m not upset about that. The hardest part is yet to come in this piece. And that will be the sun rays beaming through the tall trees, vines, and leaves. So I’ll be looking at multiple pictures to get a good idea of what I need to do and watch out for. The third hardest part will be the little river Boritta is levitating or jumping over. I’ve never colored water and never looked at how water reflection works. But I doubt it’ll be too hard to figure out.
We end the five poster series with Boritta. I saved the best character for last. Just from first observation you can tell this piece is the most complex out of the other four posters. Every since I first sketch Boritta two years ago I’ve always said she’s the most difficult and funnest character for me to draw. So what better way to end this series with a bang. If you’ve followed along this past month on this blog or on YouTube. You’d know that these 5 main characters will have the most impact on the Xavian series throughout the first 4 chapters.
I got to say thanks to Alvarex for the amazing inks he’s done. I’ve enjoyed working with him this past month and hope to continue to work with him in the future. My artwork has gone to a whole new level and when I finish coloring it, Boritta will probably be the best-selling poster out of the series in my opinion. Sorry Xavian, but it’ll be tough to beat Boritta’s poster.
