Interesting to see text mixed in with your art. Never seen it before Some of that cool, lively but frozen stuff that's in b/w photos is in here too. Gaw, I'm so glad people never ask me to explain myself. I luv the smooth shading, I don't know if it mixes that well with the stark 2-color background pattern... maybe if it was smoothed in?
Well I thought that if the background was all shaded in too, it'd be too busy and distracting for the text.
Her face is actually a lot more shaded than i meant for it to be... once I started, I couldn't stop. :/
I get that with shading too.. you start off meaning to take it one way and it goes another... hmm true dat, but, I still say the contrast's a bit sharp. Maybe if a grey was dropped in there instead of black?
Nya, just brainstorming anyway. Never take it like, "ZOMG do this!" More like, "hey, y'know, in a hypothetical alternate universe... could that or that work?" Ne. Something. *heat fries brain*
I did try to draw it like the model's in the magazine. It's a little hard to tell where her lashes are, I guess, because they're black, and I had to guess a bit. (not to mention the pic was small)
