Its wonderfull, really. Now want to hear what I would have done?
I love everything you did but I associate wood or autum with brown, I would have made her eyes a brownish red hue, not too red though. And then her hair, which I love how you did, I would have gradually used the red into brown and then a greyish color, in what direction though; I have no idea.
About the eyes ... I guess you're right - and I thought about that too, when I made it, but i totally fell in love with how well the blue color match the hair. Maybe I should give it a shot and change eyes and hair one day
Welcome to DA, sir. It looks like you're already starting off with a "bang". Beautiful work indeed, in this as well as the Winter piece. I really like the natural wood grain texture you utilized here, and haven't yet seen that concept applied before on DA. Preserving part of the natural light in the photograph really enhanced the believability of this piece as well, gives it a natural looking depth and makes her "pop out" from the piece more.
Subcity does some amazing</i. tutorials. I'm constantly impressed by his willingness to educate.
However, Doublethink is quite right - it may have drawn inspiration from the tutorial, but it definitely stands on its own.
Awesome work. Glad you enjoyed the stock! Hope to see more of your work soon...
