Playing A Bit With Color

A couple days ago I posted a couple pen and ink graphics of some spiffy clothes with people in them.   One of them was this guy, Connor, from the Assassin’s Creed game.  My one disappointment was that his costume is blue, tan and brown and the local color is lost in a pen and ink sketch.

So, I decided to play yesterday.  The first thing I did was to print my sketch on some cheap paper.  That was a mistake and I wish I’d used better paper but we live and learn.  The next step was to apply some color, which is where I learned about my first mistake as I couldn’t move the color around at all as it soaked immediately into the unsized paper and was stuck.  I also couldn’t put multiple layers as the paper started coming apart when I tried.  Nevertheless, it was fun and I liked the results.  I know nothing of the Assassin’s Creed game but I sure do like the costume.
