Yup... up WAY to late again (it's almost 4:30... AM!) Kids are gonna be awake in about 2 hours (3 if I'm extremely lucky). Anyway, I've been up so late, cuz' I have been working on a revised coloring style. A little different than my normal style... more of an 'actual' painting process. Take a look, compare this to some of my other pieces and let me know what you guys think? Do you like this better, or should I keep w/ what I've been doing?
PLEASE COMMENT!!! I NEEEEEEEEEED FEEDBACK!!! CONSTRUCTIVE CRITICISM!
Now... off to sleepy town!
Upon seein' the previous image, Neil (my counterpart)commented that she was too thin, (not as solid as we want her to seem). One of the things that I need to come across on her is that she's very strong, confident, and capable (maybe even a little arrogant!) I've been trying to change her up and make her bigger/stronger/thicker w/ real curves. Also, she's sexy without ever trying.
She does have 'grey' skin, so I'm still trying to experiment w/ the right shades. It's hard for that not to come of as pastey, but I still need to have a healthy glow to her skin. I'm glad this one seems to be a step in the right direction.
This coloring style is faster than my current style. (I usually clock between 8-10 hours to color a piece, this one took me about 5-6, and I can probably shave some off of that once I get more comfortable w/ it.
When I looked at this image again this morning, I realized it's too 'light'. The highlights are a little over-done. So I need to look at fixing that. Probably be some differences between this and the finished version.
