IF: Wool


Howdy!  My entry to Illustration Friday theme: wool!  I had so many other sketches I was working on for this theme but none of them worked...so I drew a quick sheep in Flash instead.  I think it worked!  I like using a limited colour palette.  It just helps so much in making sure that the piece doesn't end up looking jarring or garish.  This wasn't always the case.  When I was much younger and just starting out, I used to not think of a specific palette before designing at all and the results were normally too bright and saturated with a few colour clashes here and there.  Luckily, I learned a few lessons and tricks along the way and nowadays the way I mix colours in backgrounds and characters normally get a lot of compliments.
