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

Well my hopes of this taking three parts did not come to pass, it will take four. Good news is that I’m behind with post-processing and I’ve actually filmed all four by this point so you won’t have to wait long for the last bit 🙂

Prismacolor Premier pencils (150 set), Prismacolor colorless blender

  • 10% Cool Grey
  • Slate Grey
  • Indigo Blue
  • Peacock Green
  • Parrot Green
  • Light Green

Today we cover mostly the grass area. I’m keeping this really simple because the image itself is very colorful and I don’t want to confuse the eye too much with doing bells and whistles on the grass.
I did the grassland in two parts, the part further back has cooler greens because that creates the illusion that it’s further back, the eye pushes cool stuff to the background. So warmer in front, cooler in the back.
This image is a tricky one since usually it also helps to darken the bits further away BUT the light source is behind everything and visible on the image so that creates a bit of a trap for us but it’s okay, we can do it!
And don’t mind me being really messy, I’m having some issues with accuracy 😀 I’m going to diagnose this as errorus motoricus or something like that.

End result of day three:
