Gurl with Guns
UPDATE: So i have came to the end with this I think. To work with color requires being bold and confident with your strokes, I think I got too wrapped up in details and lost sight of the bigger picture, I painted for 15 hours or so on this and it feels like im jsut spinning my artistic tires on it now, and half way through I changed the direction of my light source.. BIG NO NO i found out. One of these is a step in my process where I lay down the highlights and shade as block of color, the nitty gritty is trying to blend them, in which case I lost momentum. Well onto other things now.
Next UP! Gurl w/ Guns. This is another drawing I did that I liked and thought it had some really nice elements to it. however like everything else I draw it desperately needed a second pass. Her balance was off, The persepctive on the guns were off / I didnt like the designs, and some of her facial features seemed placed wrong. Don't get me wrong I could easily give any drawing a 3/4/5 pass over to tweak and tighten, but I wanted to get to painting her. Plus the longer I work on something the less chance their is of me finishing it.
