Hey @Dominic Falisi! I did a quick paintover. I love the graphic style so I mostly wanted to pop the character out more and leave your shapes alone. I did however render the hair in a more shape-painting style. I'll be honest- I just used auto color and it brought out the warmth in the skin tones I wanted. I wrote some notes on the hue shift affecting the skin tones so I didn't feel like a complete hack! I did however desaturate the are near his waist- it's a subtle note but it adds more depth to an otherwise all blue background. There's a thousand ways to adjust the contrast in photoshop but I usually use a levels layer. If not, there's always auto contrast! Now we just need to wait for the auto paint button... Jokes aside, great work and thanks for sharing!
this is a painting i made for a dtiys challenge (just to credit, this is not my oc). i think im not sure about the mood, i am trying to present the character as stuggling and in a tense situation, just about to fail. i think the lighting and color doesnt really show the mood i was going for, and the expression is a bit blank. any ideas or critique are greatly appreciated, on theese or any topics you can think i can improve on. thanks !
