woman in red by Satansgoalie woman in red by Satansgoalie
this is actually a WIP but i wanted to go ahead and post it and get some feedback on it. at some point i am going to finish the dress and work on the hair (the hardest part imo).
its been about 6 hours work so far and i think it is looking pretty good.

Very Cool! Sorry I missed this, saw it in your journal. Better late than never. I like the almost Nagel look to this piece.

I miss Pat Nagel's work, so I appreciate it when other artists take the Nagel look, but take it up a notch and put a new twist to it. I've been a fan of Pat Nagel since I was a student in art school. His style was so rich and clean. You did a great job and it is a nice tribute to Pat Nagel.

her hair is so flat, are you going to add any reflections or variety in colour?

I have that too, but you'll get there... maybe if you take a different/inspiring perspective to it? :giggle: I just got an "inspiring" idea from your style - make her promote Fanta propaganda... the German cokeacola yah!!

See? :D inspiration DOES motivate the designer!!

sorry, that was a quick to judge comment. I see you're working on it, hope the results make her come to life with a bit more detail.

Gradients, or mesh work (on some of the skin)? I can't seem to get either to work with me, because there's too much fumbling with the color pallet/selecting/deselecting. Arrrgh.

I'm liking it so far; the jewelery stands out well, and the anatomy is spot-on. Is this from scratch or with a reference photo?

If possible, you can play with the contrast to make her body pop out a little more. From the looks of it, her face seems to have a bit more depth.

thanks for the tip...if you don't mind, when i get ready to do the hair i would like to look to your work as a guide...maybe find a couple of pieces with really good hair and try and copy it.

I think perhaps the breasts should be at least five times larger, maybe more. But other then that I love it. Getting the kind of soft human skin feel to it that this has must be a chore using a vector program, so when people do it I'm always impressed. Its like making a flower out of legos! But shoot, it looks pretty done to me right now, I love it.

Looks good, maybe it's my imagination but the breasts seem hella' low. Like at least a good 2-3 inches off where they should be.
