This time I’m drawing Mipha from The Legend Of Zelda- Breath Of The Wild. I’m trying out a new technique where you sketch and outline everything digitally but print it out and color it traditionally. Yo you benefit of using references in an easier way but still work traditionally.

At the moment I’m trying out a lot of techniques I never used before. A lot of them I’ve seen on instagram and just wanted to try them out. Stepping out of my comfort zone and trying out new things is very stressing for me but on the other hand I think that’s how you grow as an artist.
This time I tried something I noticed that @cmetznerdotcom (IG) is using. It’s about sketching digitally and then you print the sketch out and work traditionally.
What should be the benefit of it? For me there’s a clear benefit because I’m still not confident with coloring 🎨 digitally. It takes me a lot of time and it’s stressing me a lot. But sketching ✍️ is quite easy and on pc using references is much easier. You can scale, move ad arrange them with nearly no effort and that’s what I love a lot. For this drawing I didn’t design a background because I just wanted to test out if that technique works for me. But in future I want to use it to create more complex drawings.
I still need to improve that (I think using violet was maybe not the best choice as outline color) but it’s really helping a lot 👍
I love you! 😘
