I took another stab at digital skin. I don’t think it turned out as well as my first attempt, which could mean that the the first effort was dumb luck, that I need more practice, or both. Anyway, I think I’ll try a red one next and then try to refine and develop them as a set.
My friend, Julie posted a link to advice on painting digital skin from one of the best and most well known illustrators today, Serge Birault. It inspired me to practice my own digital skin painting technique.
While I read Serge’s advice, I only followed part of it, since I really think I just need to practice before I start implementing specific suggestions. However, I did try to use more blue and green- I actually started with a solid green layer on the face. Also, while I didn’t use his suggested ‘dry brush’ for texture (I only used one brush throughout the sketch), I did make an effort to make smaller strokes to develop a more refined pattern with more color variation than I normally go for. I think I will implement more of his techniques next time.
Critique and suggestions are welcome!
