Who Me? I'm Innocent! by dreamlandcody Who Me? I'm Innocent! by dreamlandcody
She bats her eyelashes, innocently, while the blood drips from her fingers. "Who me?" She says, "I would never!"

I was trying out a different technique with this piece in terms of coloring than I normally do. I started only working with black, white and grey, and worked on paying more attention to value first. Then, I added a color layer and actually, it was a pretty awesome effect.

Took 14 hours-ish

Photoshop CS5 and Wacom Intuos5

I've thought about using that technique myself, which would you say is better? Grey first, or just plain colour?

I adore the hairy arm and her horns/hair :heart:
I haven't seen a deviation from you in ages, can't wait to see more! :D

Well if you are confident about color I would just got for it. If you want to plan out stuff and be more careful to not make mistakes then I would go for grey first. The only thing I found hard was that the overlay color is not always true to colors and sometimes it comes out wonky. I think practice would help with that. And thank you for the compliments :)

Actually recently at school we have HAD to colour our concept art greyscale first, then add layers of colours over the top.
I'll keep that in mind; but I'm sure I'll figure it out with a bit of trial and error and help from photoshop ;)
Regarding your work, I really mean what i say. Keep it up, you've been improving in leaps and bounds.

Thank you! Yes, I have. I have been practicing a bunch. Drawing every single day most of the day. Practicing anatomy and such.

:wow: nice job... i think this is your best so far... the only thing i noticed is her eyes could be a bit lower like where her ears are... but other than that it's definitely a step in the right direction ;)

I love the coloring and shading, it looks amazing. I love the semy-realism towards strong realism style anyway. I also really enjoy her design and the fact that she's in a skimpy outfit, with a demonic look in her eyes (and body) while also trying to look innocent -which she really doesn't lol-. she could be a great villian for a story, or someone who's actually good, just misunderstood and feared for no reason.
So to sum it all up: Great, original design, lovely shading/lighting technique and great pose.

Thank you sooo much for taking the time to write this critique. I really appreciate it!! And I didn't think of her looking bad and then actually being good....great concept. If I make a comic with her and use that idea I will credit you :)

You are a freakishly awesome digital painter, the detail and coloring are great. And, in all your work, you have a nice setting and mood based in dark humor. I'd love to see your take on the characters of "Wonderland!" :D

No problem. You have terrific work. Yeah, I was meaning "Alice's Adventures in Wonderland" by Lewis Carroll. I think you'd be a wonderful artist to visually recreate some of those characters and scenes. :)
