Bear Scare in progress... rough color study

This was a challenging color study, but I finally got a magical & nice fire lit feeling. I did this rather small, and messy on Abode Photoshop with my Wacom Tablet. I did this just to work through color ideas without being committed or risk messing up a real painting! I can't wait to watercolor this, it will be so fun! All this planning & process work is the hardest part of illustration for me. This time really pays off  so than when I sit down to paint the finished piece it is so much easier to tackle and relaxing. Traditional painting is still my favorite process for creating artwork, even though using digital media is a super helpful tool :)
