My second digital painting. It’s a realistic anime based on the Vietnamese singer Mai Thien Van in the song Tieng Song Huong from Paris By Night 91.
As you can see below, I was painting with a stream-of-consciousness approach, and that’s why it took so long to complete (Note to self: don’t do that again–plan the rough concept). I actually like how I drew the non la (Vietnamese hat) initially now that I look back–but what’s done is done.
I always do a desaturation test to make sure I get the value right–that’s why the last picture in the process is in grayscale.
Comments? Criticism? How can I improve?
