Digital art_2019. Herring in a fur coat

Hi friends!

Sometimes I like to draw stories with humor)))
This character came about when I was thinking about the topic of New Year's food. It seemed to me too boring to draw the appearance of an ordinary dish.
Why not add a version of a humanized dish, I thought!

This is a comic scene on the theme of a popular New Year's dish that people like to cook in Russia.

Ready artwork

Sketch in Photoshop


I select a palette of colors.
I would like to depict the scene in contrasting colors, but in soft pastel colors, reminiscent of a winter salad

Color Palette

I start by choosing colors for the character.
The real color of the herring is not very expressive, so I choose a nice green color for her coat.

Step 1_Character

Then I sketch out the salad base colors underneath.

Step 2_Salad

I detail the character and the top layers of the salad with mayonnaise and elements of vegetable decor on top

Step 3_Salad and decor

At this step I modify the character - I change the color of her coat to a more attractive one and add accessories - green on the bag, a wreath of green peas

Step 4_Character details

Only the background remains.
I select a square gradient from the prepared palette so that it makes the character stand out.
And I also decided to humorize further and added an impromptu curtain of mayonnaise drips from above.

Step 5_Background

The final touch is drop shadows and color correction.
That's all.
If this picture made you smile. it means that the artist has achieved his target!
