This was the second coloring project I had done. At first I wanted to continue the retro-wave style I had done in the previous drawing. I was playing around with it for a while, and it wasn't working. There was too much color, and it was looking very naive. But in one lucky click of the mouse, the background turned black, and I was left with only the aquamarine side-light from the right. I was instantly hyped! It looked like the monster was lit by a moon glow at midnight. I quickly ditched the retro colors and went with the night version. It was starting to look cool, but was missing something. I spent a while, looking at it, trying to figure out why it still looked "meh". And suddenly it hit me: LASERS. lol yes. Those lasers were delicious to add.
