Colour Pallette Monster Girl


Author Comments

UPDATED IMAGE: Fixed her two lowest arms thanks to some helpful critiques from JohnnyUtah. Thanks Jeff!

Tried a different stylistic approach with my digital painting today...!

Started with five colours (red, blue, yellow, white and orange) and built a character completely around that palette. In this case I ended up with a weird multi-armed alien lady!

Also tried to use colour hues and values appropriately so this image would still make sense if I gray-scaled it -- so I practiced more with lights and darks.

ANOTHER thing I tried to do is create an interesting silhouette. Also the weird objects she's holding are just me trying to create an interesting made-up narrative. :V

ANYWAY I'm not making a lot of sense; it made sense at the time. Really I was just messin' around. HOPE YOU GUYS LIKE IT - I LEARNED LOTS.


She reminds me of a genderbent Jedah Dohma

Like everyone said, this is quite the interesting color palette! Very interesting things happening in this picture. It does feel like she's bathing on the sun's surface...some sort of Sun Demon perhaps?

you chose quite the color palette. That's what I love about this, you chose to something more creative and different, and it came out really nice. and yes, I would love to learn more about the monster girl you've created, and the narrative behind the objects she's holding.

Thanks so much! c:
It was really fun to improvise.

The narrative is pretty shallow, but I was going for something along the lines of her having to harvest hearts and replace them with something else. The string is for when she stitches up her victims once she's successfully removed a heart. It's sort of unclear, but the thing she's holding behind her back is a knife.

Interesting color choice! I rarely find blue/yellow combos like this come out really well in the end, but this looks great.

Also, if it is worth mentioning, it took me a few glances to realize she has four arms and not just a really long, twisted third arm. :P

Thanks. Yeah, a friend of mine pointed this out, too. I totally see what you guys mean. Good eye!

I'll see if I can't fix the issue up somehow.
