progress

It's Thanksgiving and I decided to work on this.

Got rid of the halo, made it simple shape overlay instead. Trying out some effect, but not feeling it...

No effects. Worked more on the background.

Slight adjustment to the contrast, a bit of overlay on the creature face and halo, more details on the dress. Also trying some minimal effect (line) on the creature.

It's almost the end of November, and a bunch of holidays is coming soon. I decided to start a new painting for the rest of the month. I don't know if I can finish it, but posting the progress here definitely helps to keep me motivated.


Initial sketch was done a couple months ago. Let's see how it goes...


Probably around 2 hrs later. I put some colors on and starting to paint. I turned the black+white sketch red brown using color layer, and now I'm painting on top of it with more variation of colors. I don't paint in oil, but I guess this is what oil painters do ...toned underpaint with more pigments on top.
