Christina by Andantonius Christina by Andantonius
5-ish hour portrait; I've been wanting to paint some pink hair for like a week and a half and finally got some time in between work to do it, haha. Also playing around with texture and effects a little bit more than usual, trying to get some more interesting markmaking in my digitale` stuff.

Also I saved the steps for it, so I'll post up a walkthrough soon!
:star:Process is up here! [Link]

Thanks for looking!

It is indeed, good catch! I really dig the pale pinks throughout that video, it's what made me want to do this in the first place, haha. Thanks! :)

Really like this one, One of the most impressive things about your art is the variety of character models you use. All too often I see many artist just draw one kind of woman, Skinny, large busted. They begin to look like wig swaps rather than different characters. You on the other hand have avoided that trap and make awesome individuals that bring their own flare and personality to the piece!

Keep it up!

Really looking forward to the process, especially to see how you go about layering all those colors without it looking 'spotty,' if that makes sense. My strokes are very opaque so that might be part of the problem, but still, I'd like to figure out how to get more depth in my colors

Thanks, I'm glad you like it!
As far as colors looking spotty, I've usually found that to be more of a value issue than color, but if it is your color try just dialing back how intensely you place additional colors. If you have to, try putting them on another layer and play with the opacity until it feels right. :)
