dark queen sketch/study/idea
This was done for a number of reasons.
First off, this isnt supposed to look finished, I wanted to try out a few things, so it isnt "really" finished. The head piece and shoulder area in particular.
Changed some of my paining method.
Instead of picking a palette of colours from the start and putting them on the "canvas", I picked all the colours from the colour box as I went along. So that way I would end up with more colours in it and gained practice at picking the right colours (something that I need to improve upon).
And speaking of colours, I tried to put more colour theory into practice. That being cool colours for shadows, warm ones for light.
Dont think I really hit the mark on that though [V]
Finally, this was based upon an idea for a dark queen character. She would be dressed in layer upon layer of dark cloth, with a large head ornement filled with black feathers and such.
I hope one day to be able to create her [8D]

Ref was used for general head proportions.
