Man, this was something to work on! I wanted to take part in celebrating Deviant Art's 18th birthday, but it quickly dawned on me that this was going to take a while. I decided to do the Colorblind Challenge to make the process more interesting. Fun fact: the whole coloring process took 3-4 hours to complete.
I'll say that the coloring job is... all right. My biggest gripe is that the muted colors on the mascot and the piñata don't work with the vibrant background and candies. Also, the flame is way off from how I initially thought it would turn out; it turned out to be less red-orange and more brown like the
piñata. I will say that the candies look the most like how I imagined they would them to look. The background looks pretty good, too. This isn't my best coloring work, but I did my best with the challenge. Hopefully, I'll do better next time.
