I wanted to experiment with a more saturated color palette than I am normally accustomed to. I also tried to experiment with a more cartoon-y look rather than my usual pseudo-realistic anime style. Here at the end of this exercise, I would say the results are satisfactory to my liking, although I probably could have played around with head angles I am less comfortable with.
The characters were inspired by my love for tea! Of course, there are so many more teas out there, but for the sake of color theory, I am concluding this series for now. That, however, does not mean I will be updating this in the future with more tea-inspired characters!
