This is the second part of my lesson of representing the "Oblivion". The previous lesson I've shown you methods of picturing the human figure ant his clothes. This part I'll try explaining the process of picturing a woman. It's not necessary to choose the same used by me colors' nuances on the picture. I just show you the approximate colors. Try to get the experience in every step you make.
1) On this stage I'll show you the order of pictured by me elements. Start by making the skin and then pass to the clothes and jewelry. I'm very fond of them, so I am of the small details. Have an attentive look at the basic draft and don't forget about the face and figure's feminism.
2) The first part of the lesson I already explained the method of picturing the skin. Here I must notice that I didn't work with the skin's structure intentionally, but the flares should be of lighter color – because I pictured a goddess, so she has a less usual shape.
3) You may see the enlarged fragments of hair. I like the contrast created by the black hair and light skin. You may notice the flares and the places on transition. Let's explain how to get this result more detailed.
4) The first step includes mentioning the basic layer with black color, which should be of the darkest color and be the same on the hair's ends. Next I'll select a lighter nuance and represent several of the locks. A little negligence makes the picture look more real.
5) Select on this stage a thinner brush for the hair locks. You may see an enlarged fragment of how I use to work with the elements. Choose now a lighter color to draw several lines, getting the locks' placement. Try not to cut out all the lines in the first row. Some of scatteredness and sharpless is just welcomed on the picture.
6) I use two nuances of lighter color to process the already represented hair locks. You may see on the enlarged fragment the flares represented with light color. Choose a darker color to insert it on the other zones. As I already explained in the first part of the lesson, you may concentrate yourself only on those parts of the hair that are more visible on the picture.
7) Select now the Shadows regime and the Burn Tool to work with the darker zones, to get the effect of contrast. The Dodge Tool and the Highlights regime help us in accentuating the highlights.
8) The hair looks livelier if representing several locks coming out the common shapes. Falling down on the forehead, on the chest and on the back of the head – these small details play a huge role on our picture. I'll remember you that representing the hair is possible to do with different colors that fit with he background and the rest of the objects.
9) The gloves. I didn't care of the textile's texture, so I tried not to get some sharp highlights and shadows. On my picture they look very simple, because when drawing I care about smoothing out the elements. Choose black color for the basic elements and then select a lighter color for drawing the shape itself.
10) Select a smooth brush of black – grey color to introduce shadows. Choosing a lighter color is possible to mark out the plaits on the textile. The rest of the elements must be darked out with Burn Tool.
