Jesusaurus Rex Phase 6: Background!

And here is the finished product. Hooray for halos!

Jesusaurus Rex Phase 5: Highlights &Shadows

Here is the final color sketch. The method I used here yields a very cartoony feel, and is relatively quick. Tune in next time for a more painterly approach. Basically, after the flat colors, I added two layers: a highlight and a shadow layer. Each one uses a different blending mode to create a specific lighting effect. I laid out the shadows and highlights with crisp edges, and then went back and softened the edges of the shading, and voila! Jesus riding a dinosaur. Next: a background!
