Youth, Johanna Lundberg (2D)

Title: Youth
Name: Johanna Lundberg
Country: Sweden
Software: Photoshop

My goal with this was portrait to really make the eyes pop and leave the rest of the elements in the picture a bit more rough.
Eyes are the mirror of the soul, and i wanted hers to reflect youth and innocence.

I loved working with the colorscheme that I chose for this piece, the light pink against the blue makes the character pop. I also painted a very soft background so it wouldn't steal so much attention from the viewer.

Very nice palette you've used there, indeed. Nice select for the pinch of a green in the back that makes connection with her eyes, the focal point(s). On the other hand her face quite detailed, but it does the trick.
As a message of innocence... I was quite surprised when I read your intentions there. The youth part works right, but for me this girl is far from innocent. Possibly her disheveled hair, or her slightly open red lipsticked mouth gives me this feeling, but... you know. Maybe I'm wrong, and she is truly emits innocence, but I'd translate it naive than innocent.
Anyway, great technique and nice work. Playing with focus with detail levels is definitely a good direction to practice.
Keep it up!

Beautiful Girl. I like the skin and color the most. Nice lighting scatter effects.
