Hey everyone. I bounce back and forth, coming and going in these forums, and I realize now that I really need put my nose to the grind stone and work out a lot of my painting flaws if I ever want to get anywhere. So here's to a new beginning!
I have this image that I've kept working on for more than 2 years now. I keep getting stuck on the shape of the girls neck on the left. I want to add warmer skin tones to express the shape change without changing much of the value but I keep getting caught up trying to model the clavicle and shoulder. I'm also having problems with rim lighting and... well I just really want to get the ground work done and all the under structure fixed before I begin detailing or changing lighting.
All critiques are appreciated! I really want to get this one done, and I know I can do it with your help!
Yes. There was an issue late last night where my original thread post, this one, wasn't showing up for quite some time. After waiting around 15 minutes I looked at my old threads and found the original to this piece. I thought there might have been an error so I posted to that one as well. Only to find out 5-10 minutes later that this one finally went through, as well as the image.
I've taken an OLD version of this painting. It's gone through a lot of changes, and after 2 years of sitting in a folder I've decided the later changes just don't do. This was meant to be a fresh start to an old idea.
