Sooo when I first claimed quantum1342's "It Takes Two to Tango" for [livejournal.com profile] deancasbigbang, I was just excited about how cute it was going to be. A sailing AU? Yesssss adorbs. And then as I was reading it and thinking about what to art, I realized a sailing AU meant I was going to have to actually draw boats. Oops. Time to look for some reference photos...






So this is a pretty straighforward paint-over, I think it's called. The underlying image is a Creative Commons-licensed (Attribution, Non-Commercial) photograph by Paul B., originally found on Flickr (used for the title banner too). It was interesting to experiment with but I think it's not my preferred style. I like adding characters to the foreground of photographs better, instead of using the eyedropper tool so extensively to make small changes in color. Multi-layer shadows are hard! So I just avoid them. :D


You can also find me on Tumblr, AO3, DeviantArt, and WordPress; this blog is just for big bangs.
