Vanity Portrait Base~

Post by Nysari » Sat Apr 24, 2010 3:40 pm

I named her Tiffany because I based this base off of a picture of me... and I felt weird naming her after my web name.

I suck horribly at creating darker skintones. :[

Thanks to all of the CC and advice everyone gave me in rehearsals! I'm not sure she would have ever made it out of the WIP folder without you guys.

Though I'm officially calling her finished, CC for future reference is always appreciated.

Yaaay you finished her! She looks great, and a huge improvement from before! I saw all the critique you got and you've got a really tough skin, I'm proud of you 8D She looks wonderful~
The ONLY thing bugging me a lot is the darkest skintone~ which is very hard to do anyway :S As you get darker, it would be nice to see it go into a less saturated purple hue, or less saturated green, or mess with a combo of the two, but... think about how dark skinned people look great in purple or green eyeshadow 8D That's because different black skintones will have those colours in them subtly~~

and this sickness that is on me is settling in my bones--

Thanks! She really has come a long, long way from before. The darkest skin was bugging me too, but I couldn't figure out why. I'll try messing with her hues a little.

I think I might use this base.....She really is wonderful and the diff. skins are the best I've seen in a while,concluding that most bases dont have more than 3 diff. skin palettes.

I think the trick with dark skintones is to have most of the contrast in the pallette in the highlights, with the darker shades closer together - that's the opposite to light skintones, where the highlights are pretty close together but the shadows have a lot of contrast between shades.
Anyway, she's a great base, I think the mouth and nose look lovely.

Thanks, everyone. And I'd love to see what you may do with her, Copen.

And it looks like photobucket ate one of my skintones. >:|
