Vampiria Morgana : W.I.P by fantasio
In this version of Morgana, I added coloring to the face, eyes and began outlining and filling the hand. I tried to work reduced, smooth and with a hint of outlines, new technique for me, but so far I like it.
Less is more.
A tip for painting hair:
Use a 50% gray and a big round brush to roughly block in values.
on top of the sketch layer, use an outliner (2-10 pixels) to define strains in black, fill inbetween with a bigger round brush.
define highlights by wourking out chunks, not the complete hair.
Think of painting hair as if you would shape clay, less is more, think 3-dimenional.
Another overlay-layer on top for some blue color, adds depth to black hair, always.
Details on top of the overlay-layer with a 2 pixel sized roundbruch can hale to add some highlights and some natural variety, such as unregular looking strains and single hair strains.
Thats it, have fun drawing!
