Tender by SaucyMuse Tender by SaucyMuse
And now for something a bit different. I was browsing around DA randomly a few days back and found this beautiful picture [link] by LinaDomina and she was kind enough to let me use it as a ref for a painting. This is the end result.

I changed up the color a bit, using color and design tricks to create something that held a lot of interest. Its largely a red/yellow/orange scheme with touches of violets and greens in the skins and sheets, along with a blue jewel hanging off a silver chain from the girls hand. I always created two custom brushes and toyed with things a bit more, along with trying a texture.

I'm pretty happy with it over all, especially their hair. I don't hate the hair, so yay. These are two character you've probably seen before, though more realistic/updated. Keila and Liam Rione, from the story Bound by Blood.

*Not putting mature filter on this simply for the fact that while they are nude there is nothing sexual showing.

Thank you :) My Analysis of Form teacher got me into gridding so when I use refs I tend to use grids. It helps me move a bit faster and more confidently.

that class is sooo brutal...first time around taking it I crumbled under the workload in a ball of tears LOL! Holy crap *INTENSE* amounts of drawing labour.

Grids were definitely helpful when we got to those portrait stages. I think more people should be taught the importance of gridding! :)
