Awry Face Blurb by waterdancer Awry Face Blurb by waterdancer
It horrible still, I know. But hey, I did something!

So this was another experiment in a lot of different ways. It was originally supposed to be a speed paint, but in the end took way long than a speed paint should. Again, getting used to Sai. A friend was nice enough to give me a bunch of brushes, so experimenting with those. Also tried painting without lines. Mostly it was an experiment in reflective light. Absolutely all shading is done in indigo, and all highlighting is done in spring green, with the exception of the hair. (though theres still a lot of that there)

I'm most proud of the lips and the nose. I took a lot of inspiration from :iconsakimichan:. Ironically, I had the most trouble with the eyes, which are usually my favourite and best area. I was going to post without hair, but :icononivale: urged me to finish it, and well, its not -finished- per se, but it's as far as its gonna get.

This is mah character Awry, with her notable tan skin, blonde hair, and eyebrow scar. Her bandana headband is also very personable to her. While those are the colors, the design is very up in the air, I suck at designing really. I didn't get to include her pointy ears or earring keepsake.

I -ABSOLUTELY- love this. I think you did an absolutely amazing job on the shading. I'm so happy that Oni urged you to do the hair because it looks so wonderful!  You need to do these much more often and to share them. ^ ^

Yes. It takes a lot of time and a lot of effort. Believe me, I know. But you have to keep practicing it to make it take less time and effort. You have a lot of potential if you stick to it.

This looks great! When you are in the mood, you should finish it :D I love all the details and you did an especially great job with her face. I laughed at the speed paint part taking longer than it should... happens to me all the time too~

Thank you! That means especially a lot coming from you! I don't think I'll work on it much more, I'm still sort of warming up to drawing again. Ive been out of practice far too long, so I'm more than a little rusty.

I'd super appreciate it if you could lend some criticism over to a piece I uploaded into my scraps: [link] I dont plan on working any more on it, but I'd love to learn by any mistakes you might be able to help point out. :)
