I’m not too sure what made me inspired to create this work, but I did have fun making it. I first did a base sketch, which is where I draw simple shapes. Then I did a sketch, where I sketched over the shapes, and since I did a lineless work this time, I had to make different layers for the different coloured pieces, and different layers for the shading on the character. I then did the background in a similar way. To make the character and the tree darker, I used clipping layers to draw black with a low opacity over it. For the sky, I started with a base colour and added and blurred other colours, then used a water colour texture brush, and then I used a brush that’s a lot of scattered dots to make the stars.
