So, I was bored, and decided to try something out of my comfort zone and test out the tablet.
My source of inspiration. (I'm not sure who she is, but I think she's pretty)
Started out with a sketch
Went over it with an black a marker (personally, it was the same brush, just darker and 2 pts thicker)
started applying the base color (I believe that's what they call it)
Started doing some shading. Yes guys, my canvas is my color palette
more shading and detailing
The hair wasn't so hard to color in, I applied some base, shadowed, highlighted, drew in some grey/white strands, and proceeded blending everything together brushblur-llike brush
Anyway, I like the result, it was the hair texture I was looking for.
Initially wasn't planning anything complicated.
I got a new signature..... it looks like.
What I've learned: I need to mirror when painting, to get a set of new "eyes" and new view. I also need to experiment with the brushes.
