I just thought wow, the moment I feel over you work. Her eyes is incredible.. May I ask how you did all this. How do you make the eyeshadow shining, with the golden and the blue/green/gray - what should I call that colour o.o. Anyway I would really like to know. - Artist in need xD Besides I think is really nice you didn't did a light make-up, cause I can't imagine anything better than this!
Aha.. I'm a traditional painter (would love to try digital, some day) and when I use gold acrylic, it just dosen't appear very gold when you take a picture. My lates work was only luck! xD SO do you think using dodge tool and sharpening would help it?
oh yeah i suck at painting with real paint and brushes :/ Yeah, but I use the highlight-dodge after I lightened it with midtones-dodge tool. and the sharepening helps with getting that kind of "crusty" look, like on the lower lid in my drawing there. and what works too is just make the surroundings darker than the part you want lightened up
