This is a work in progress of yet another in the long line of characters I have on Sanguine Affliction. There is no shading yet. I haven't finished the chopsticks or the earrings either. The hair was giving me troubles. It looks better than it did. *shrug* Any comments or thoughts would be appreciated. Pay no attention to the sketch book still showing. >_>
I hope you don't mind my experiment with your image. I curve things all the time like that since I'm right-handed. I tend to flip the image during the drawing process to catch myself in the act. If I'm not drawing digitally, I just hold it up to a mirror.
I think that the image is so beautiful, especially the wispy hair parts!
Wystro, Yes, I'm right handed. I noticed on the last piece I did that it slanted funny. So what do you do to fix it? You used the warp tool to curve all of it or parts of it back in the other direction? And, no, I don't mind at all critiques are helpful. I wouldn't get any better otherwise. Mark away! 2
The other day I noticed the other day that I put on eyeliner best backwards for my left, going outside to inside, than how I put the line on my right eye. Just random handedness fact.
Thats sounds weird I know but its a pretty cool effect you manage!
Here is the latest on the hair. I changed the hairline a bit more and added strands of hair for shading. I need to fiddle with the chopsticks some more. I just sort of tossed them in there.
I have no idea what that means, if it's just that I'm on the craptop, or maybe I'm going blind because I'm getting old and shit, but there you go. I love them when I can see them however!
I added shadows and such and so forth.
Since it seems more than one person can't see the highlights I made them brighter again. So does this show up?
I think the highlights on the hair were really what it needed to make the hairline 'work'. I was processing the way the hair fell completely differently before you put the highlights in and really showed the shape of things.
You did a nice job with all of her features. I think it was a good move putting in the bridge of her nose - it gives her face a sharp, interesting look that I think you were going for.
