Hey guys! Thanks =D
I should show the ref pic of my daughter that I used:
I didn’t notice the knee until today! Can you believe it! haha =D I’m not sure if I’m going to go back to it or not… I’ll have to ponder it, but I’ve flattened it and that makes my head want to bust just thinking about it!
Well, to be perfectly honest, that leaf isn’t supposed to even be a real leaf. I had a sort of crises in the midst of doing this piece - I realized that I want to go more stylized and cartoony with my paintings – I had imagined this with this piece, and failed utterly in rendering it out. I just basically am the type of painter at this point who tries blindly But hey, I can’t complain, I’m still very much a novice and amateur so everything is a learning experience.
I still can’t believe I didn’t notice the knee til today though, after I went through all the posting of it… bah!
Admittedly, I just had to finish this one at this point to get it off my plate. Maybe when I’m more experienced I’ll be able to shelve things and go back to them - right now it needs to be completely off my mental whiteboard of ‘things to do’
I think the reason I didn’t texture the leaves was precisely because I was trying to add the more stylized look. Bah, sometimes I feel so wonky I dunno what I’m doing!
Oh and I LOVE Miyazaki!! I’m a huge huge fan
