Aesthetics of May 2015
This month I took a little less comission work than April. I have a slot reserved for two more heads, but they won't arrive until the end of the month, so they won't be finished until in June. However, I like the easier pace that leaves me more time for toher things.
Well, above is a comission to paint a Bluefairy boy. I loved this! Bluefairy default face-ups are kind of bland and simplistic that goes well for the image they are going for, but is so far off from my own style. So it was a thrill to give a more intense face-up on one of them :) I hope to do more, maybe a girl with a more smokey eyes or just plain pastel colours.
And then I did an upgrade on Deary's Bleu. You can see the old version here. It has been three years since I last painted this head and it sure shows :D I remember last time I was cursing because pastel got stuck in those deep grooves between the nose and the eyes. Well, I knew to watch out for it this time, but I still managed to spread the pastels more softly. Also, the eyebrows and especially the lashes are way better now! Yey for seeing concrete improvement :3
