i had a lot of fun with this one, despite making a couple of mistakes.
this was the first time i painstakingly compiled a reference in photoshop and sat next to it for the pencil sketch (which i did over and over again). i got 7 bottles of different coloured inks and experimented with watercolour techniques. and i applied (cheap ass) silver paint, which almost ruined the whole thing. still i am quite pleased with the storytelling effect and overall outcome.
this lady cost me the last of my nerves. stuck in the sketch phase for months, lineart done a couple of weeks ago, i was afraid to ruin everything trying to add diluted ink shading and when i finally mustered up the courage … BAM! the paper fucks me over, gets blotchy and spotty. so i went for black out again. she is still not finished and i doubt she ever will be.
