Daily Deviation

Given 2012-09-05
Vanity by =KismetVexel has some delicious, vibrant colours. The shading is also lovely and the simple background is a nice touch. ( Featured by jussta )
:icondaroneasa:
What pops out most in this are the beautiful colors you chose! I love how delicate the linework is, and the hair is just amazing, so vibrant and such a unique hair-style!
The skintones are subtle and yet perfect, the area around her eyes is particularly well done.

As far as improvements go, you might want to go back in with a very fine brush to vary the size of the strands of hair a little more in the neck area. I can see you did it with the further lobes of hair, it just seems a little clunky in the strands on her right side.

Also, the lips and the ear look a little off in their shading. Considering the light source and the hair, the upper part of her ear should be a little darker, I feel, and have more shadows across it.

Beautiful work, thank you for sharing it!

This is really nice. I'm horrible at pixel/vector/vexel. XD

The hair, that hair is AMAZING. The only thing I could see you doing with it is perhaps using a darker color, and by that I mean for the shadows, Like, just adding a little bit of a darker color on the darkest shadows to give it a bit more depth. It's fine without it, but I just think it would make it a little more visually pleasing.

As for the face, once again, really nice. I think it needs a little bit darker shadows as well though, but the softness is nice as is. But, she looks a little like a doll, by that...I mean she looks like there's no soul in there. I can't explain why this picture makes me feel this way, it just does. I think a few highlights in her eyes, eyelashes and lips might help that.

(Unless your goal was to make it look kinda flat-ish and pinup-like or keep it simple, then you're perfect lol)

But overall, I really like the picture. XD
