If you're wondering what killed me the last few weeks... (or was it months?) it was a crazy load of assignments, submissions and exams.
So to 'celebrate' my freedom, cos apparently i have no life, i just decided to try out something new. Since i don't have and have never tried painting using oils, i simulated the experience on Corel Painter -.-
Used a reference photo which is one i took some time ago wearing bunny ears cos i knew i was pretty much happy at that point in time.
Below: Screenshot of working on the details. (u can see a small section of Bouguereau's painting in the back- he's my favourite master artist so far.)
The painting is still incomplete... and kinda creepy lookin.
And somehow the oils' capabilities were not as intuitive with my drawing tablet's pressure sensitivity so i switched to acrylics halfway through.
Below: Before adding the aqua colored highlights.
Just need some opinions... Do you think it looks better with or without the aqua highlights? Like should I just stick to the warm color palette?
