Thank you :)

her wiggly fingers freak me out hahaha..

great line work though! Great to see a rougher looking piece on the art portal :)


Samantha-Rose responds:

Thank you :)

Looks intense! I like the rough pencil-like lines. It really gives me the feel of going up in flames.
though I think it will look even better if you used a bit more 'hot' colours, instead of the desaturated blues and greens.

Maybe try picking a colour-pallete to work from first and then apply those colours to the piece afterwards. I think it would work better if you chose a single colour that will represent your image, something between orange and red would represent 'burning up in flames' to me. And then build your colour-pallette around that colour, by using complimenting colours that work well.

Aside from the colouring, I think you did a great job in expressing the emotion of the situation. Especially the pieces of clothing going up in flames. It looks like this person is struggling (going by the expression). Proportion-wise, everything looks good and the pose looks convincing and realistic. It's a pretty good piece!

Samantha-Rose responds:

Alex has a blue-green palette, her flames are also blue-green hued. I think as the artist of said photo that her colors are just right. Purples and blues represent Alexandria 100%. Go read her story on my Deviantart, maybe that'll give you context.
