Here is an aborted watercolor I started about 2-3 years ago. Found it in a pile of art I unearthed when I was unpacking my stuff back into my house. Watercolors are supposed to be light, translucent and ethereal and to get this image to where I think it needs to be, I need to go more in opaque, acrylic direction. Especially since I want to make her pants a nice shiny black leather. Look at this version as the basetones. I need to darken a lot of the shadows and diffuse the edges.
My goal is to work on this a bit here and there and post the evolving image. Some of the changes I can do in photoshop but I need to finish adding some inks and textures and then balance out my colors.
To be continued.
