For this one, I used reference and went for a children's story book illustration feeling. I also used a couple of brushes to tweak it afterwards. In this work, the colors are way more saturated than what I am used to. I personally like it more than the others so I think I will be using more reference. After all, it is the best teacher!
One day, when I'll have more time on my hands, I will submit a fully detailed painting. Adding details is the most tedious part for me and unfortunately, the most time consuming.
