I started this drawing in my sketchbook
I used this type of lock to lock layers of paint during work. This way I could get to the big parts of the painting and not deviate from them even when I added shadows and lighting.
From the references, I realized that the characters are very soft, so I used Gaussian Blur often.
I liked the prints that were on one of the characters in the hair area, so I chose to add them to my character design as well
I used After Effect to add some effects
