Red puddle

After a long time of drawing in light colours I decided to try to make an illustration with the less colours I can and the darker colours the better.
That's the result.
I don't know if she is a vampire, a witch or simply someone bathing in ketchup, you are free to choose your version.

  4. Very nice shading for the skin. What colours did you use for the shadows ... is there a hint of greyish green in them or is my eyes playing tricks on me?

    Wow ... I get to learn something new ... before this I did not know who was Elizabeth Báthory! ^_^

    1. I used mostly grey for the skin shadows with a hint of red in some points maybe that's the reason one can see a bit of green in the only grey parts, but I am working with the laptop so I am not totally sure about the final effect on a monitor of a real computer :)

    2. Thanks for the info. I am currently going back to basics on painting skin tones on miniatures and I am trying to figure out colour mixtures for realistic skin tones. Sadly because I have no formal art training I am not too sure about colour combinations for skin and painting via trial and error. I did see a YouTube video of an art teacher creating skin colours from just three primary colours and white so that gives me a rough idea about the topic.

      I have a laptop too and I agree that the colours of a photo or picture on a laptop just doesn't do either justice. ^_^

    3. skin tone is a big deal, when I paint I usually mix orange, light brown and white and somethimes a touch of blue but I am not sure that's the best solution.
