1). The skin is great. Her stomach looks like it is really reflecting the light. What type of brush do you use for the lighting FX? Airbrush? Spackle brush?
2). The leggins design work is great. Did you create it all freehand in PS? If so, I love the little shades and additions of blue to them. It makes them seem very 3 dimensional.
3). Lastly, two small critiques. The whole image is so detailed, but the eyes seems just a bit flat. I know the image is further away, but some speckles of light could have really brought them out a bit more. Also, maybe a touch of feather brushing at her hairline would have eased in the transition from forehaed to hair just a tad.
Thanks for sharing your coloring talent and thanks for listening!
I don't remeber maybe soft or hard brush XD but it doesn't really matter the trick is nice combination of soft nad hard shadow and lighting, soft for general shading and lights, and really bright strokes for light reflection, I think hard brush is good for that It's nice to use linear dodge mode in Photoshop for that, it makes really nice light effects
That design was free hand painted, I like to paint this type of things ^_^.
I know about the eyes, I had a lot of problems with them XD
Thanks for comment
