Me again. I hope you don't mind me posting this so close to when I posted the last one, it's just that I am an impatient person and like to put work up as soon as I can and since I am about to start working on a bunch of non MMA things I figured a second thread would not clog up the arteries of the fanpost section too much. Anyway, I will try to be more patient in the future.
This one is the complete opposite of the last one, uber bright by comparison and with her smiling. I took what you guys said into account and changed the colour scheme to better represent her character, and I think NickRing4pGOAT said that he likes the half finished style of the half drawn hair so I gave that a try also. I prefer it to the other one I think, it's a lot more positive looking in general.
Let me know what you think. I get most of my feedback from The Mr and you guys (DA has a system where if you want to receive critiques you have to be part of a ranking system which is an idea that I am not a fan of) so all comments are appreciated.
Work In Progress Shots:
Laying out the structure. In the end result the eyes are slightly off position, so I'll have to be more careful with that in the future.
All orange and shiz. Before I started the drawing I thought very carefully about the colours I would use. I decided on orange, red, purple and black because it would be a mostly warm colour pallette.
Getting some proper depth here by adding red to the shadowy parts.
The black gets added in. That is like, my favourite part. To me, the eyes are the most important part of the face so when the eyes start to look like the person I am trying to draw I get super excited.
That's it. Credit to the photographer, who I do not know the name of but the photo is on Liz Carmouche's profile on the UFC website.
Cheers for looking! Have a nice day.
