Photoshop

I worked with a Round brush with Shape Dynamics turned off and Other Dynamics turned on with Pen Pressure, Spacing set to 1% and Hardness between 85-90% to block in all of the painting (Fig.06).

I kept in mind that although it was a night scene with a strong blue light, all the colors of the elements still need to be in perceptive but also influenced by the light. I had a lot of fun painting the boy and the monster. It was fun to play around with how the light interacted with them and work out which colors I needed to focus on.

After I had the boy well defined, I decided to put some texture on his clothes. I searched for a suitable wool texture and applied it. I used the Overlay blending mode and adjusted its Opacity (Fig.07a - 07b).

I applied a skin texture on his face too. I didn't apply it on his hands because they were in the shadows. Again I used the Overlay blending mode and adjusted its Opacity (Fig.08a - 08b).

I had the most fun with, and put the most work into, the monster. It was fun because his face is hilarious and during its painting I caught myself laughing. It was hard work because of its volumes, mainly its mouth. It was very frustrating until I found the right volume.
