Hey everyone! I am not sure if it is in time or not but anyway here it is. I really thought I was going for mask but I ended picking up glasses :D It turned out pretty cool along with those dreads (Tried to keep leaning pose for her similar to that map with that fence). I call her Maple.
Hey Nishant, I like the painting, it has a lot of personality. I think what is causing it to look muddy is because of the bluish color you are using in the shadows. Because the skin is a low chroma orange, when it mixes with the blue, it creates a gray color. Using blue in the shadow is fine, but because it's kind of mixing with the skin color, it's not creating the cool colored shadow that I think you were going for. This happens a lot to oil painters who blend the shadow color into the skin color instead of mixing a new color as a transition. I hope this is helpful :)
Hey! I recently finished this piece which I was planning to add to my portfolio. Following are the rough and end product. From my point of view I kind of get the feeling of it being little bit muddy especially around her head but I am not sure how to fix that. I would appreciate any helpful critiques Thank you!
