A watercolor process
These two character designs are inspired by chess. Imagining a real battle when you play chess, every chess stuff has it's own personality with different level and right. So I made them into specific character.
The King is from Chinese chess while the Queen is from western chess. I think it would be fun if there is a battle between these two similar chess play.
Sketch on ipad. IPad Pro is my favorite tool to start a work. You can change every element's size and position freely and easily. And with the geometry and perspective ruler, you can make the next line work step better.
Print the ipad sketch and copy onto the watercolor paper.
Add color from wet to dry. It would be better if you made a digital color test before, then you can draw it more confidently and naturally
