Moving on to more complicated colouring, I decided on a scenery. This includes lighting and natural colours, with more colour hues. I actually saw a nice sketch of a citadel with incredible lighting and I would like to move on to that some time, but who knows! The scenery chosen is drawn by bylmichelle.

Besides colours I also used lighting with the Soft Light layer effect. I figured this makes the image much more vibrant and sunny. The sky in the background has a simple gradient on it to make it more realistic. I’m quite pleased with the result, and it only took me about two hours this time.
