Step 5 - Color Palette

The second step here you to choose the main colors for you scene .A very important stage in creating your artwork is to decide which color solution is best for that your painting. The first thing that comes to mind with a snake in golden colors. Background is cold and I decide to give it a real night color, which has an added surprise because dark blue is also a natural sign of a dark mysterious night.

Step 6 - Creating the Layers

Now I'm going to show you some important knowledge about layers. I named my new layer name as "sketch" And now here as you see I have 3 layers. You must do the same on your own project. And now the first layer is for my signature. You can add a signature your image too.. On the next steps I'm going to create some more layers. The reason for painting on such new layers because of you need to make corrections later in the painting. It is much easier to fix errors if the main elements of your painting are separate entities. This step is really really very important.
