Normally at this point I’d just colour on the computer, but the completed look I wanted to have for this picture was some sort of natural looking texture, a rough and grainy type feel but still keeping a smooth overall look, so I printed the picture at high resolution to keep the quality alive and thought this would be a good excuse to use the Faber-Castell colouring pencils again, which, I do really like now that I feel as though I’m starting to get to grips with them, they have a really good quality feel and the colours blend quite well giving an overall nice vibrant finish, I found that if the strokes of the pencil go in the same direction it keeps the colour nice and even, however, there’s still a lot of room for improvement. Definitely a country mile better than the cheap stuff handed to me as a kid that would break constantly after each time sharpening up, but thats another story. Anyhow once the colouring was done it was back into the computer to add all the finishing touches generally cleaning up the image (again), adding the lighting and darkness effects with the help of Photoshop. See the images below to see how my nightmare turned out in the end.
Its time for the stars to present itself in the form of beats. With the “Zodiak Series” complete, with “Pieces” being the last one, I have created a sound that conveys the essence of the Water Sign. A unique sound with variety and soundscapes you may have heard before occupies your speakers. Experience the sound of Pisces. Hope you have enjoyed the series over the last four years I know I have learnt a lot and evolved over time. Feel free to contact me or holla in regards to the music I have created during this series via twitter @MykeForte. Thanks again for the support! One.
