Greetings to all, I hope you are having a good week, for my part I have distracted my mind a bit but from time to time I still find time to do what I love the most which is drawing, this time I wanted to do something semi realistic and at the same time with a little surreal touch, something that I have always liked a lot are candles, the way they melt and the very interesting lights that you can find in them is incredible, that's why today I decided to create a portrait where a finger making the gesture of "silence" is made of wax, thus creating a small candle on the tip of the finger, for this drawing I wanted to use warm tones but I decided that I would use other tones a little more desaturated and with more opaque tones, I hope you like it and tell me what this work transmits to you.
After making my sketch I chose the colors that for this opportunity would be warm tones but a little desaturated, I began to apply the colors on the face filling each part carelessly and then in a new layer adding more tones and details to each part of the face. I continued blending these colors into each other to create a smooth and soft skin, I wanted to make her eyes a light blue color but then I thought it would be interesting to make them “white” but using more natural tones, I started with a gray base, and then applied shades pinks and browns, for the hair I chose a dark brown.
I added more details to the eyes with the pink and brown tones, I also painted the eyelashes and eyebrows, I took care of shaping the torso and the hand, this part was quite difficult but I think at least it looks like a hand lol, I painted a small candle on her finger and this time I wanted a bit more colorful hair, so I started painting dark pink highlights on the hair.
To create more realism I started to paint lights and shadows making some parts of the face stand out more than others, finally I applied a color adjustment to the whole image since I liked the idea of creating more darkness and a shadow in the drawing.
