I realize it's not the weekend, when I usually post up my work, but I'm on a roll lately and decided to push my luck. I'm trying to continue to push the values, contrast, and simplify my colors. Tried to keep her to hero colors: Blue, Purple, Red, and some leather. The real win in this model was the hair. I'm so, so, so, so happy with the hair. Sure, it's on the bold yellow of blonde, but I got the volumes of it. Finally! I've taken a lot of feedback on the hair and just didn't get it. This one finally lined up and blonde felt doable. Keeping the highlights toward where the light hits the bend in the hair has been really tough for me, so this was a win. Other feedback I used from prior posts that I was given: 1. Used brown liner to, well, brown line things. 2. Pushed the colors as high as I could. Actually the boots are a good example I went too far and it looks less blended. 3. Layered the paint lighter and took more layers to get desired result. 4. Have your palette out first and don't just keep reaching for the next color. (Big, big win) The areas that still needed help are her skin, the eyes, that weird leather satchel, the detail on the leather straps, edge highlighting, but all that - I still think the hair was my happy moment. Here's the pictures of the progress. By the time I got here, I was struggling and really, really rethinking my color choices. I accidently used the purple in the area I meant to use tan. Just keep going with it because that's a learning experience in itself. Here is where I darkened the leather and red areas with a succubus kiss wash. I needed to deepen the leather color and help bring some shade forward. Questionable doing that again... Tried to give her blue eyes and then realized that was not working. Went right back to the black dot. Wah wah.
