Had a bit of a block today while figuring out how to go about doing the face. The nose was a little difficult but took a lot less time when compared to the eyes. Had quite a bit of trouble with depth and it did take a while to work out. For the eyes, I had to screw around with brush settings and trial-and-error several styles before finally settling on one. Funny thing by the way…
The skin requires only 7 layers overall:
- Dark Skin Base
- Brighter Skin Tone
- Flesh Tone
- Bright Skin Tone
- Shadow Tone
- Light Skin Tone
The eyes require roughly 16 lol. The hell?
Challenging myself is fun and all, and a good experience to boot, but this takes way too long. If I get some more practice in, I might be able to finish something like this more quickly, but I need to seriously consider a simpler style.
Finishing this illustration and then playing with style simplification…again lol.
Anywho, thanks for reading! I’ll see you guys tomorrow.
