As you might know already by browsing through my stream is that I have a big thing for fairytales and magic. Even though I grew up, I never quite gave up on the child in me and I constantly allow myself the ingenuousness. This is somehow my healing or my escape most probably. I nuture this side of me.
In this picture, I wanted a little more vivid colors, remiding a bit Indian Summer with the Saffron, Paprika colors.The headpiece released by Aisling at We <3 RP gives a hippie chic flair to it which I like very much! Even though Aisling never deceive in terms of jewelry and Headpieces, I really really miss their heavier master pieces with a lot of flowers etc and I do hope they will also release some of these for summer! Let’s cross our fingers!
Also, I have been practicing a lot with my new graphic tablet ( Wacome Intuos Comic) and a new (not so new) software called Paint Tool Sai. Compared to Photoshop, Sai is more focused on pure drawing and is more efficient in the field of stabilizing the cursor. However, I recommend using a graphic tablet with SAI, it works very poorly with a mouse or at all.
I wanted to work my “ethnicity” on this portrait and give a mixed asian look to my avatar. The eyelids and nose work are very important for that. It is not perfect but I love how unique it looks in the end.
