"Beyond beautiful the world suddenly appeared to her, rich with a multitude of colors beyond anything she had ever imagined. She knew right then, there was no going back to the black and white lense that had been taught to her."
So this piece just started out as just a doodle as I was messing around with a different technique of exploring form. Basically just kind of scribbling like I used to when I used to sketch things with pencil, but at the same time just really letting my imagination flow out. It kind of surprised me by turning out somewhat decent, so I decided to color it and somewhat give it a finished look.
Yes I am aware that pretty much every aspect of this could be a lot better. Face, hands and just over all anatomy could definitely use some more work. And the coloring could be more varied and richer as well. But again, I was just messing around with new methods. And for not taking a lot of effort, I'm pretty happy with the way it turned out. I could spend more time on it, but this is enough on this concept for now.
