Arrietty: Color rough illustration

Hey guys! I got a little training time at work and got permission to post it online. My challenge for this one: A painted/rendered cartoon with a soft light/low contrast and blue/green atmosphere. I only had time to get to rough colors but I’m hoping to o finish it when I have some spare time at home. 🙂 The character is lightly inspired by Arrietty, from The Borrowers.

Big thanks to my AD Sara for helping me step out of my comfort zone with the constraints. >w<

Some quick colors for ambiance. Mostly just color layers though, next step, painting! 😀
