Last update for today... here's my half of my art trade with
, of her OC Midnight Star, aka Puck Puddlebill. This trade is distinctive because it's the first one I've had from someone who doesn't watch me, hee ^_^ Getting noticed! Anyway - the pose was from this picture/model(?) of Catwoman: [link]
It seemed appropriate.
How'd I do with the foreshortening? I know there's not THAT much of it, just on the arm and the waist, but I thought it came out OK. I think that arm would have completely messed me up six months ago.
This would have been done last night except that after hand-inking it I had to up the contrast really high to keep the lines dark enough (I'm not sure why) and when I was done the line quality was utter trash. So I started out just fixing a few spots and realized I'd need to reline the whole thing in Photoshop, and it took me a couple of hours (non-consecutive). I'm glad I did it, though, because if I hadn't it would have been something I'd just rushed and not put my best into. This, I'm much more proud of, and since it's an art trade I want to do my best.
Rainbow hair is HARD, y'all. But I like how the colours here came out and how the background looks, as simple as it is.
So! An art trade in the first half of the month instead of the last minute! Yay!
