Apologies for getting carried away. It was so much fun to draw this one, that I forgot about the rest of the parade. Yes it is a float, loosely based on the ones I saw and I just let my imagination fill in the rest.
I am still experimenting with the brushes in Artflow. I started out with a watercolor type brush, but that could not be resized too much, so I switched to a hard brush which I changed the opacity to 50% so that shading becomes possible. It gives a streaky effect like a crayon I decided to go with that for now, but will probably only use it for hair or fur in the future.
Back when I was working on an enchanted forest, I noticed I could get sucked in small details of fantasy objects. They are just so soothing to draw. Semi crooked houses, weird shapes and lots of wood.
In the end I had to literally just stop. Stop adding more details. It is a good thing I guess when the focus gets so high that you forget about everything else. It just is too bad there are more chores to do 😉
