It looks pretty damn nice so far... Only thing is that you should have fixed her left arm before...

And play with the flow as well as opacity... it makes for nice effects...

and there is something that has to do with a greyscale layer... and I don't understand that stuff... i know Erwt does though.

Hmmm... I'm not being much help... and I've become a suck@ss forum member...

Color can be a bit diffcult to understand. The reason why your having so much difficulty with colors is because, your trying to jump into colors without any good solid understanding of values.

Try practicing more with values, like grayscale coloring/painting, monochromatic, and shading your drawings 3 dimensionally. It will make your transition to color more easier. Trying to paint or color without any knowledge of values can be fustrating and difficult, Unless your goin to color flat colors like cartoons.

Lighting/shadows, shading, You always have to think 3 dimensionally. forms, shapes, and all that chocolatey goodness.

Go ahead and continue like that... just keep experimenting till you find something that you like.

One thing on shading, which apparently worked for Renaissance artists, is shadow. Light hits an area and creates TWO shadows, one on the object being hit by light (the area of the object not directly hit by light), the other is the shadow cast by the object (or the shadow created by the object).

These distinction of shadow (one cast on the object, the other cast by the object) apparently helped Renaissance artists, like Leonardo and Michaelangelo, be utter drawing bad-asses. One of the tricks is to pay attention to the shadow cast by an object which falls on itself.

heh to put it more simply hes talking about Cast Shadow. He made it sound more complicating and confusing lol. Highlights,light,midtones,shadows,reflective light,and cast shadow. All that stuff is basic stuff every artist should know.

Maybe this picture is more easier to understand

The trick, which I was trying to get at, is to remember that cast shadow can fall on the object creating it. When you deal with an amorphous form, like the human body, shadows cast by one part of the body can fall on another part.

Italy?

Rome? The Flavian Ampitheatre?

It would be nice to know how to do the dark shiny clothing objects...

something with just using a type of zigzagging white line to represent the curves is what I've seen...

Oi? and Undertow has posted alot this week compared to his old average...
