Not that I have a history of leaving art projects unfinished or anything. No, no. Nothing like that.
So here are the stages of my elven cleric. I'm looking for some constructive criticism and some helpful input on what to do next.
Here she is without a nose, because I was afraid I'd mess it up:
But after I added the background, she looked a little washed out. So I went back in and reworked some of the shadows and contrasts.
So, here is where I am right now. She doesn't look quite finished. Suggestions????
edit to add--Thanks Nora! I want that hand to look illuminated, so I was afraid to add much color to it. I'll rework that area tomorrow. In the meantime, left to my own devices, I tried to make her face a bit more symmetrical, and I darkened the shadows on her far arm.
