The first thing I color is the skin, always. I color on a new layer in Multiply, so I can still see the lines underneath.
Next, I usually do the bulk of the clothing. In this case, a dress and sandals.
At this stage, I add design elements to the clothing and build the nearest background elements, to make sure the image still has balance. Or at least, that's what I tell myself.
Well, if you made it through all of that, thanks for spending time with me. Let me know what you think. If you didn't make it through it, I don't blame you. Once again, I would like to thank my homegirl, Sasha, in Florida, (who will probably never even see this blog) for letting me use her nickname to complete this character. Please feel free to leave any comment, critiques or questions you feel like. Thanks again for visiting.
