It’s one of those galactic sort of days today and day you’ll want to make sure you have your towel with you. There are many important reasons to have a towel – you can read them
HERE. To help celebrate, I thought it would be fun to come up with two new digital scenes. The one featured in this post is . Polka Dot Pals Trillian Towel Day
Coloring a Galactic Sky
In the video, I show how I colored the galactic sky. It’s really a fun technique and can be done in a variety of colors and patterns.
I wanted to go for non-traditional colors and started with coloring the Polka Dot Pals’ hair green, From there I mainly stuck with a cool color pallet with the greens, blues, teals, purples and grays. But to add some added pop and contrast, I added some pink and yellow into the mix.
I’ve been playing around with lights lately and took this as another opportunity to add more. The lights I used on this one are the mini fairy lights that are practically a dime a dozen on Amazon. Not quite that inexpensive but certainly easy on the budget. I built up a frame to hold the battery/switch housing then wrapped and taped the lights around the outside. The remainders I taped on the inside because I was afraid of what would happen if I cut them. Didn’t want to do that and I had plenty of room inside to stuff the extras.
