Got two more nearly done. I tried do keep the translucent look to the hands. I love the technique that was shared with me a while back about "priming" these with matte medium to help paint stick to them and not lose that clear look. Wins: * Both hands came out pretty good with easy enough highlighting with dry brushing. * The purple was an interesting attempt. I had actually tried using a purple wash below in the smoke area, but it didn't go well. Swapped it back to blue. * The purpled did, however keep more of that 'clear' look more than the blue did. * The smoke effects came out great. I used a blue ink to tint and fill in the deeper areas. Then drybrushed a prussian blue. Then lightened it up to a sky blue. Then finally to white. Cool effect! Misses: * I wish there was a better way to do the cut-off portion of the wrist on both of these. They just don't have a lot of interest there with them going from smoke to hand. I'd love some ideas. * The knuckles on the blue hand was a little too strong. I think I should have stayed to a lighter blue more than going to a white. * Maybe should have avoided the edge highlight around the wrist area. Now, what the heck do I do with these? I'm going to fill in the stone work below them to have a blue hue to them like they are getting radiant light from the hands, but not sure what else needs to be done? Interesting and fun!
