Aloy So Far…

AloySoFar

I have lost momentum with Aloy, and may never finish her. This is as far as I got with her. I’m pretty happy with her as she is, I’ve certainly captured her awesome, indomitable, warrior persona (:

All my creativity is going into Maria at the moment, on whom I have done 6 hours work, so far. Because she is my first physical painting in four years, I keep forgetting to clean my palette/brushes! I also tend not to push things as far as I should while the paint is still wet… something easily fixed digitally, painfully not easily fixed physically! The biggest difference between digital & physical painting is not about the actual paint/surface, which are remarkably similar, but it is this: you need to be brave when painting physically, you need to commit yourself, not play it safe, otherwise you don’t get the results you want, and you often get results you didn’t want!
