Make it Crafty Images:
I've been playing around with a bit of black and white coloring and it helps me to focus on the shadows and contrast a lot easier than with colors. However, to add a bit of color and contrast in a designing aspect, I colored one image black and white and the other image in full color. It worked out a lot better than I expected! Then because I was too lazy to get my Christmas cards out, I just grabbed the closest green and red paper and used that. As a result, I think it has more of a vintage feel to it and I like that effect.
This image is also perfect for practicing coloring faces with the same light source but in three different angles. I was able to focus on the cheeks and noses and could have gone a bit darker but started to get worried that I'd mess it up. So, you'll have to look closely for *those* details! Thanks for dropping by and I hope you've enjoyed this little bit of wintery inspiration!
