Bathroom Blues

Yet another Girl ün Girl polaroid. I'm pretty happy with how the colours came out, I was trying to get a kind of indie-fashion photo look, with pushed blue shadows.

I'm finding these polaroid illustrations to be really fun, but extremely time consuming. I'll probably do more.

I was working on two non-polaroid Girl ün Girl drawings that felt really labourious to work on, I realized that the drawings were becoming rigid and stiff, which goes against what I've been trying to accomplish with my work lately. I'm trying hard to keep loose.

This was in the backlog for a few months; I drew it really fast, but had troubles trying to choose colours and designing a background. Things started to come together when I made the shadows darker than the linework which I hope gives it a Takeshi Koike-esque look. This is a look I'm eager to pursue, it'd be cool do an animated short in this style, but I'll have to see what it looks like with backgrounds.
