Digital painting from life



So I thought I'd try to jump to doing a color painting of the model this week. I was a bit worried. If you've read my review on DA you'll know that I think the tablet pc's color is pretty weak. This week definitely proved it. These are much more garish than I thought they were. Did not expect that shoulder to be so green. Face was really rushed and looks awful. That part had nothing to do with the tablet. Next time, I'm thinking I should perhaps use the dodge and burn tools (I don't normally) so that I know the values are around where I want too. I thought some places were white and they weren't even close once I got it onto my main computer.
