Ahh, a new SB page, it's fitting of the new understanding I'm getting working with the default PS brushes.
This is my 1-2 hr attempt at working without ref, picking my own color palette (was going for a more translucent skin color - like old paintings, didn't work out too well) and attempting to explore brush strokes. I learned A LOT...what suggestions do you guys have, im thinking it doesn't have enough contrast..but im not sure???
and yeah i know the breasts are a little off, and they're not entirely round, i'm having trouble dealing with sharp details and creating areas of immediate contrast (such as the ribs)
maybe i need to use some turquoise, or some greens to make certain things pop? most of those colors were quite analogous
one more question - do you guys lay out your colors before hand or just go at it and choose as you go? i find myself ALTing colors nearby and as a result it becomes kinda flat.
