I still maintained at least 1 painting at the beginning of the year back in my study times (god, how much free time did I have!?). This coloring skill was inspired by the so-called 厚塗り(atsunuri) used by some Japanese and western artists. The painting procedure usually starts with a rough sketch and builds color layers to achieve the thick color effect. The result was very exciting. I added the oriental dragon and lion dance elements to fit the Lunar New Year theme.
