Vanitas WIP – part deux

…and almost done! I’ve decided to post stages of my work because I know people like to see how things evolve. I think I nailed it with the colors of the main elements, but next time I’ll start from the background up, because I find it harder to keep the contour lines untouched while I fill in the background color.

Step 1: Blocking the volumes and giving the overall shading

Step 2: More blocking in…

Step 3: Adding the color

Step 4: More color…From now on it’s basically reinforcing every layer I’ve already put on the canvas.

Step 5: Making the first approach for the background color.

Step 6:  I add more depth to the shading

Step 7:  I reinforce the lines and make the skull pop

Step 8:  I lay down a couple of background layer and fix the girl’s hair, in addition to adding more detail on the man. I’m close to finish now!

My next post will be about the finished piece and … I’ll probably do it this weekend. Or at least that’s the plan. Cheers to you!
