Working around with the new style a bit, found an interesting way to incorporate more tone-variation in the solids, not sure yet if that's something I want to do though. Took a bit longer than my regular speeds though, about 50 minutes.
The contrasting red vs. green coloring looks very nice without being christmasy, as that combo usually ends up being. I'm curious though, the green-lit details are very sharp and the red-lit details are rather fuzzy, except for the red around the back of the character's head and neck, was this purposful?
Well, it was all very sharp originally, then I was messing around with an overlay layer and the dodge tool and thought it made it look more cloth-like. I didn't really purposely leave the neck stuff undone, but I could probably just say that it's a harder metallic surface there. This is all experimenting really, I need to develop a good hard-edge shadow style.
You are amazing. Each of your works brims with character, tells a silent story, and has more style to them then most professional grade conceptual art I've seen. Wonderful! - Why is a raven like a writing desk?
