Steampunk Princess Part 2: Playing with Color
The colors I use to paint dark skin: Reaper Bronzed Highlight and Reaper Dark Skin. The next few pictures are with my first mixture of the ‘midtone’ but I later made it lighter.
I base coated her skin with the above colors, the blouse is shadowed with oiled leather, the corset is nightmare black and the hair is washed in noir black. It’s a nice group of colors, but she’ll look NOTHING like this in a moment. ^_^
The next shade on the blouse is Reaper Rose Quartz + a bit of Oiled Leather to create the midtone.
final touch ups of the pink. She looks good this way too!
The ‘finalish’ color is splintered bone, grey liner and white. This was the color I was going for. I’m still going to go up just a bit more in some places and better blend the shadows.
The Corset!!!!! I didn’t take pictures of this process. I was far too busy ooing at aahing at it. I used Nightmare black in the shadows, carnival purple + Dragon Blue as the midtone and Dragon blue as a GLAZE on top of that. I really wanted to grasp that it was a blue leather corset. I think it looks alright and it matches the blouse nicely.
To Be Continued!
