Oh my GOD! THe eyes, i mean the colors and my eyes. The colors are blowing my MIND!
I mean REALLY! The depth and dimensionality are taking me on a beach party TRIP!
It may sound wrong but I kinda wonder what would happen if i printed this up as a poster and put it in front of folks while they got high. I wonder what kind of TRIP that would be!

Frikkin ablebabble AWESOME piece!

I love the shading of the skin and hair. I, surprisingly, even like the bold line outlining the hair and body.

Hmm, her nose and mouth look too small for her face in my opinion, but everything else is extremely well done. I love your colouring skills.

On second thought, it's probably that the eyes don't suit her head shape. Maybe if they were a bit smaller to suit the nose and mouth, then it would be perfect. Hope you don't mind me saying this.

The proportions are meant to be done in this way i'm sure, or the artist would have made a note of that fact in the description.

this feels like a big push forward in your skills. the contrast in color of the visor and shades seem like they could have posed a real challenge. The use of extreme line variation in your work is real interesting, how do you decide on shading of those lines and to/not to make the lines thick/thin? Do you just play it by ear for the width? More importantly is the choice in the use of color on the linework. And when you choose to blend the colors and when leave harder edges.. Any advice?

thanks! mostly i use the lines to sort of divide elements in the picture. as an example, her hairline is defined with thin colored lines, to help blend it into her head, and most lines within the boundary of her hair are also thin and colored to emphasize that they're one big element, but then there are dark, thick outlines around the outer edges of the rest of the hair that help separate it from her body, the background, etc. the super thick outlines around the elements closest to the viewer (mostly her head, torso and arms,) pull them into focus and away from the background, but then the thinner colored lines around her legs and feet fade them into the background a little and hopefully create a sense of depth, although i don't know if i'm happy with how the foreshortening turned out

with coloring, i use soft shading on things that are supposed to have sort of a matte texture or low gloss to them, and harder shading for focused highlights and cast shadows, especially on "shiny" surfaces (using higher contrast helps too.) hard edges also help define details like individual strands of hair and folds in fabric

wow, thanks for the response. i know you're a popular one, and your attention to your fans is appreciated. The line variation definitely succeeds in dividing the spaces on the figure and helps focus the eye. It definitely sounds a little intuitive how you approach it, but there's a logic to it. I get the use of hard and soft shading.. The selective harder highlights on her skin give a fresh sun bake quality to it. And she doesn't seem discordant from the background which is something i always have an issue with. Anywho, really great piece, but i expect no less from one of my "most influenced-by" artists. Thanks again for getting' back to me.

the coloring is absolutely amazing -- just look at her skin glow! i love the mix of neutrals in the sand and trees against those violently bright hues in her clothing and accessories. this just screams the beach and summer, oh my goodness. ♥
