Christina Ricci "finished" (17-03-11)

here my 2nd drawing in progres, Christina Ricci (wednesday addams).
the help i need is, i need to now is how dark to go i know i need to go darker
(scared to ruin it) but do you always exactly go as dark as the picture?
thank you! (sorry for bad picture)



well don't know i can call it finished, more like i gave up on it :(.
as you see i don't really get the principals of blending yet.
stil needs work on the body(and the background on the left side of the body is to dark).
so i'll still need to do some work on it at one point.
and ofcourse all hits and tips (and critics!) are welkom.
(sorry again for the dark pic, don't have a scanner)

Re: Christina Ricci WIP (help needed)

I think your start looks pretty good.
I know your problem with going dark. It is scarry, because once you try to really darken an area, you can't really go back and erase it.
But when you want to improve and to create a realistic style you need to do the step.
Even when you might make an mistake and ruin a part of the drawing....it is an learning process.

Start with small things in her face. Like the nares, when that worked move on to her eyes and eyebrows. And then you can start with the big dark parts, like the shadows and her hair.

I wish you luck and a lot of patience, it is an important step. :)

Re: Christina Ricci WIP (help needed)

Hi,
If it helps use a grey scale to gauge how dark you need to go, just place it next to the section on the ref that you are drawing.
And compare to what you have done.
