More Work In Progress

I tried to get a better picture of this but the the full moon must be effecting my camera. I'll try again when the moon's a little less full.



I'm doing more layers than I usually do (or like) but I think it's going to work out fine. Foundation colors for the skin are done, now it's time to work on my favorite things. . .details!



I also usually don't work on the background till I've finished the main focal point because I tend to change my mind on the background depending on the colors of the portrait. I often change original tones to the skin or color of shirts and such. This time since I'm impatient, I just want to get the background in and work on my favorite part. (it still may change a little)

think I'm going to try saving my whites more. Masking is a handy thing but am finding it is more annoying than I feel like bothering with lol Like the way you layout your sketches. Today I made a VERY small drawing of an owl to torture myself trying to save the whites..LOL maybe I'll post it tomorrow ;)

What was your initial yellow for the base? Or is it an ancient Chinese secret?! lol

Pablo Villicana Lara said...

HA HA HA! that would be an ancient pre columbian secret called New Gamboge. . .
Torture is good sometimes!
