I haven't painted this skin tone often, and this has an awful lot of skin to practice on! The wings were just straight-up fun; I worked less on smooth blending as much as "do I like it?" I couldn't resist putting some garnets on her base. Otherwise I painted the base to be similar to a blueschist.

    I think you did an excellent job on both skin and wings!

    Thank you! She was very fun to paint! Next round will have more time spent on the base (I liked her enough I want to paint her again someday).

    Really enjoy the colour palette on this one. Well done on the skin, next time you could go less harsh a highlight on the stomach and collarbone sections, female skin always looks better with smoother transitions of highlights.

      I actually referred a lot to the model art on Dark Sword’s website for her, but instead of pale skin, I aimed for a Mediterranean tan. That’s how I landed on the conclusion of high contrast there. She has some harsh edges, like she’s sucking in her tummy a bit!

    La peinture est bien réalisée,  le support n’est pas extraordinaire et ne rend pas justice à votre travail
