So i started my actually project this week. It was really fun, although I took out some of the mushrooms in the painting because they were completely bathes in shadows and i wasn't sure how to make them show up enough. Next week i might try to add them back, and I will definitely paint the butterfly in. I am happy with how the trees and grass look in the background as I feel like i got the darkness pretty well. I am most happy with how the figure turned out, I struggled a little in its creation, specifically the feet and mixing some of the color. I ran out of the main skin tone base that i was using, and I didn't recreate it perfectly so the forearms are slightly a different more purple color, but it is barely noticeable so I think it is fine. I love the way that the figure turned out. Also the last picture is kind of shinny and it doesn't really look like that in real life. i am going to have to take a better picture once i finish it. I still probably need to work on my tree painting skills lol, but they are just so much more boring than the figure.
I am a sleep deprived artist trying to make ends meet. :)
