Another item of digital practice from the start of the summer, I thought it about time I practised a digital mooncalf. :meow:

I had the idea to make her a kind of gypsy-type person, and gave her some little symbolic (:noes:) accoutrements. That's some form of poncho she's meant to be wearing. I thought she might make an interesting character, but all my figures are meant to evoke that feeling.

I shoulda remembered to put the eyes in the right place though. :iconheaddeskplz:

Here's my promised critique. I can't think much cause I've just stupidly surrounded the whole botanical garden to get home, but I'll try.

Again, you've done a really good job making a digital painting look traditional, I consider it a good thing, especially because it shows that you have a very cemented personal style and you can make your works recognizable regardless of the medium used. The colours used work perfectly together, I like how you've balanced the orange and the blue but adding some warm tones to the insides of the ears too, and the gorgeous blue eyes are a great touch too. The skin is just as purple as it should be, not too exaggerated and alien-like, but enough to notice, and the face shadows are really smooth and pale, which goes well with the gloomy background. Also, I have to say something about the hair, I love how you've blended it into the background, and her haircut is also interesting. You're definitely on your way to mastering this medium too. I'm horribly tired so I'll make an abrupt end.
What do you think?

Really? I didn't really put any texture work into this, but I guess the brushwork ain't too bad. =p

This is some good ass practice. I loke the balance of the tattoo on the right shoulder and the ear ring on the left ear, well done on that. Each brush stroke is skillfully placed and one can see you really know what you're doing.

Glad to see you're as capable in the digital as you are in the traditional.

That's because you have a dirty mind and a secret mooncalf fetish.

Good picture, bit different than rest of Your work, maybe because it's digital.

Yea, I've been doing a lot of digital practice recently, on the basis that it could be useful for college. And it's always good to expand one's ability by learning a new medium. :meow:
