Bust of rainbow light by crayonmaniac Bust of rainbow light by crayonmaniac
WIP TWO AND PLEASE FULL VIEW

Up at the very crack of dawn (yeah for insomnia as an artist lol) to finish the hair and the shoulders. Just this once I am going to show the entire process how i build her up from scratch. Zones that are still mere lines I will blur to make the visual more coherent like the rest of the arms here.

next step, finish the girl, the skirt, the arms and the hands and perhaps add more bling if the fancy takes me

As this is for Asa who works in the fashion world, this one has to be glamorous indeed ;-)

And good advice to some of my watchers who have ambitions to become serious digital painters : putting in some effort on the hair always pays off ;-)

No need to fave my friends, there will be many steps to follow on this one, I am going to share them, for those who are bored with the process, fave the final one lol

en fait j'adore faire les cheveux donc pour moi le temps vole quand je fais cela, c'est pur plaisir et quand on aime on ne compte pas, d'autres cheveux seraient une honte pour le crayon, des beaux cheveux cela épatte toujours ;-)

Voila!!! Wohoo...for me??!! How very wonderful to follow the progress, I have to say the hair is 'splendido' indeed, and the skin texture, and the wide eyes expression!! And not to forget to mention the fabric, pearls and earrings...what a fantastic amount of time/effort spent here Tine!! A little humble opinion, isn't her ears placed a little too high up? Take a mirror an look in your face to see the perpective , ears/end of the nose...no complaints only a little pondering!!!
She's amazing indeed and your talent is truly spectacular...:iconswingplz: :dance: :hug:

honey never feel sorry for pointing things out to me! I am self taught so I am on dA primarily to learn things not to be praised (well praise is nice when it is due lol) But the ear thing is tricky, i think it depends on the tilt of the head and i figured that out. But then i searched for faces here and found many "straight at you" looking heads with ears this high up.
So I am going to study it some more, and i can push them down a bit in digital, no problem but first i need to paint further down, whoohoo, what i showed is only a WIP, still many many changes to make on this one
see you honey and thanks
