JUST IN TIME.
A character design for the Train Your Brain Competition.
She is an old character of mine. The spheres surrounding her absorb sunlight and are the source of her power.
I wanted to try painting an updated version of her and practice my digital painting, particularly focusing on colour, as a lot of my previous work had been very pastel-y coloured. I tried out a few techniques with this one after researching which were very helpful, but this unfortunately still took me a lot longer than I hoped. Over 10 hours, I really need to improve my drawing speed.
If anyone has any tips for this please feel free to drop a comment I'd really like some advice!
Also, this is the first piece in a while I have uploaded. After teaching this year I had been very busy indeed and a lot of the painting and drawing I did was for work (which I cannot upload). After being surrounded by students enjoying painting and who had so many interesting concepts I was just itching to have some time to draw for myself. Although it took too long, I still really enjoyed this and hope I can continue to practice and improve on my skills.
