Girl on a leaf

Series: The Daily Marker Art Card #21

Another girl digi — quite an old one — from The East Wind and another attempt at non-Caucasian skin. Once again I started testing with a combo from Sandy Allnock’s human rainbow but ended up tweaking the selection to something that seems to work better with the way I colour skin.

I tried repeating the background technique I used on the green fairy. This time there was much more variation in the tone of the colours and it gave a more mottled feel, which is absolutely fine as I was going for a kind of woodland feel.

    1. It’s so easy to just use the same ones each time… I was thinking about doing a blog post when I’ve got a few combinations that I’m happy with, though given how much I had to tweak Sandy’s before they worked for me, I don’t know how useful it would be…
