Grumpy Cat Tutorial


About this lesson


Grouchy Cupid Cat is a great exercise in creating form by painting tone and establishing shine and texture with brush technique. With its limited palette it’s not too taxing when it comes to color mixing, but it will push you to get dark enough with your darkest tones, so it’s great if you tend to be timid when it comes to establishing depth of color. We also need to capture his subtlety whilst still managing to give those wings an iridescent effects, and some drama! As well as going through how to mix the hues for a realistic pink hue that is not-too-pink.
