Apple Girl Complete

A while ago I posted a sketch of this Apple Girl Illustration I was working on. I finally completed.

I'm really happy with it because while I feel like I'm really good at using watercolor for sketching from life or just coloring a character quickly I find it harder to plan an illustration with watercolor. When I do finish one I usually don't like it.

This one was different because I thought about it for a bit (way too long,) and created a color thumbnail for it which helped immensely. I also had a false start but it proved to be useful since the second time was much easier and I felt more prepared to finish it off.

I'm going to be making more Illustrations like these in the future.

The painting came out awesome! I like doing little color keys for my paintings too.
