Punk (5 colors, small image alert)

on: June 11, 2007, 03:05:03 pm
 I was bored, and something inspired me to do this peice...not sure at all what, though. I really like this peice, even though it is small, I think it is one of my best yet. I really enjoyed limiting myself to 5 colors, even though I was tempted to add more, I didn't..whoo. 1 hour-ish spent on this.

The body and the face shading work really well. The hair could use a rework to follow the cubed head shape, looks a bit tacked on. With a bit more contrast, it would work at 1x, right now i think it looks best at 2x. Check out Tremulant's work for good contrast ideas for this kind of size and subject.

I pretty much agree with turbo, it does look better at 2x, but imo the squarish head is a little odd with the body... maybe if you rounded the bottom off a little?
The above post may not be helpful at all, as the author usually has no idea what he is talking about.

Maybe more extreme haircut? and if you paint squarish head, light on her must conform to his form. I think need define style, squarish - than body must keep this, now he is more real... or realistic style (some a bit comic), than head need revamp.
