Rare Red

Revisiting an old character, mainly as a study. I want to get better at faces, and I want to get a better understanding of color. So here, I'm trying to achieve both.


I started by grabbing colors off of some photos. But none of the photos had the colors I wanted. So I started tweaking them to suit my tastes. Still, picking color off of the photos, gives me a better understanding about the relationship of color. Where before, I thought in only terms of light or dark, or saturated or muted. I'm now starting to see the relationship between cold and warm, and how relative color is to one another. So I'm hoping I can achieve richer color blends.


I feel like I might have drawn her face too tall. But I couldn't bring myself to "fix" that. Because she's supposed to be super tall. I wanted to give the impression of her size, even when you can't see her body. She's a small giant.

I really love the shading and coloring of this; it's quite unique and improved compared to your previous colored works.
