Yeah, it sure seems like it. I do a lot of my underpainting in blue or sometimes transfer stuff to a better sheet of paper with just blue ink and then paint it.
Cyan is always the first cartridge to go to empty on my printer as well.
I guess it's in my digital work too... this is very blue as well..
great great great GREAT stuff here man. I love the Juno piece. How long did it take you to create it? From first thumbnails to final illustration?
I did the juno piece a while ago back when when I was concentrating really hard on trying to do illustrative portraits that achieved a likeness.
I started out just doing pencil sketches of both the actors for a while (along with other characters from other films)... people in my illustration program seemed pretty positive towards my juno sketches so I wound up re-doing them full figure as a watercolor/ink piece.
I was lucky... I banged out most of it in an afternoon/evening. I did some digital fixes later on to it though to clean up some things.
Sorry... I don't really remember how long it took me. It was done pretty sporadically over the course of a week or two outside of my course-work and classes. The meat of it was pretty much done in a day though.
I think it was done right after the christmas break that year... I probably did a bunch of sketches over Christmas break and then finished it sometime during the next two weeks back at school to hand it in for an assignment.... digital fixes were probably done after the fact (I think) -- hopefully that answers your question
