Finally Got around to painting/finish painting this. It was inspired by Benjamin Zhang's artwork below. I am no where near as pushed as him, maybe next time I can land closer.Value was definetly hard with these saturated and extreme colors, I viewed it in black and white mode several times to try and push the value (helping me avoid getting distracted by colors/saturation). I tried using saturation levels to add darker tones, and I chose to keep a black line around the tip of the gun barrel to help show contrast (plus it made me feel like the gun was firing more). I did my best to avoid using black as it flattened the image; but used it to push the background back underneath her legs. Well I hope you like it, It was a good learning experience, I can't wait to share my figure artwork I have been doing.
