Another, even quicker, quickie for today. Going to be gone all day today but I wanted to do something before I leave. Might be too tired late tonight when I get home, and this gives me an excuse to play a bit more in Photoshop with some of the new brushes. This piece was done as an attempt to get the cheek right. The rest of the face didn't matter except to give the cheek some context. Otherwise this would look really strange. I'm fairly happy with it. I got some of the depth I was shooting for, but not completely happy with the color. There is a lot more I could do with the color. I stuck too much with the pinks and purples. Need to loosen up and really get adventurous. With time I suppose. I was using a wet oil brush and a watercolor brush set at different opacities. The line art itself was done using the conte pencil brush. Completely done in Photoshop, in 30 minutes.
