Well I'll call her done! I had fun with this project and it sort of evolved as I progressed. I like that about painting. Sometimes I start with a fully realized idea but other times as I paint new things occur to me. I feel like I'm falling into a rut with these mirror effects, but no jezebel would be complete without some vanity! Oh well. I'll try to branch out in the future! At any rate, my wip is here and I'm happy to answer questions and whatnot. Enjoy! see everyone in Texas sooooooon!!! I broke out my specs on this one to do the face. My eye doctor says they're fine but I swear my eyes are going... this whole turning 40 thing sucks, btw...
Sigh. I really have to get cracking on some figures. I like this one. Lots of skin to play with and fabric I can turn sheer! I'll probably add some free hand to the cloth as well. But for now, we begin! My first plan is to figure out what color scheme I want. I'm a fan of complementary colors because they're an easy way to get contrast. So since I want to do her with bronzed skin which lives in the orange family. The complement or orange is blue. So. Blue cloth. Hooray! Problem solved. I think I also used walnut brown and some pure white. The deep twilight isn't quite that dark. It's more of a soft purple. The color swatches never look quite right to me. I'm going to glaze some pumpkin orange into the skin when I'm done. Basecoated somewhat. I like the pale blue. Some more shading done. Trying to figure out the buttocks for the sheer cloth in the back. I think I need a thigh on our right to show through. I like putting skin down first in the sheer areas, then glazing the cloth over it to soften the transition. Starting to shade in some of the gold jewlery. But at least the colors make sense. I've got a long way to go yet. The light source will be from the left. More soon. If anyone has questions let me know. Sometimes I forget to explain steps of my process.
