While I've been unemployed, I have taken it upon myself to learn some new skills. This was me learning the colourizing from a black and white under-painting technique. I also discovered a use for the "dissolve" layer mode white I was at it... IT CAN MAKE SPARKLES!
I also learned that it's okay to keep adjusting flow and opacity constantly... before I usually chose one setting and stuck with it the whole painting.
Apologies to this skinny fictional 18 year old boy who has been turned into a piece of meat.
