Color with me – Castle on the Hill from The Magical City, part two

Rock’n’roll! Part two! Today we’ll tackle the tree and the castle itself. Ready? Set… GO!

The light source here is clearly the sun and the placement of it makes for a bit of a tricky mindgame but we’ll just worry less and color more.
You can totally use black on the windows if you want, I just prefer the mix of dark brown and dark blue since it creates a shade that is a lot more interesting.
Don’t have much for you today in terms of words, just color and I’ll see you soon for the third part!

End result of day two:

The book is a bit too wide for my scanner so sadly we’re missing parts. But I’ll take a proper picture for you once it’s all done, no worries.


All the parts of this tutorial:
Day one – sun, clouds, sky
Day two – tree, castle
Day three – grass, bridge
Day four – flowers, river
