Details

Now, the detailed work began. As you can see, I love painting details and textures; this part is the most fun to me and, accordingly, takes the most amount of time (Fig.06). Adding details and textures gives the picture a realistic look, but it's important that the details always fit the picture as too many details can destroy the realistic look. If you draw a lot, you develop a feeling for balance (Fig.07).

Color Correction and Final Touches

The picture now looked almost finished, but in some place it was too dark or not gaudy enough. These problems were easily fixed with adjustment layers. With the adjustment Curves, for example, I changed the contrast to a bluer color. Or with the Channel Mixer I changed the lightning colors a bit - you can check it out in Fig.08. So that the picture appeared even funnier and the characters more alive, I added some speech bubbles.

Closing Words

Now, the picture was finished - I hope you like it! And I hope this article was useful and fun to read.
