For this project I wanted to do better with my coloring in Photoshop. I spent many hours in Photoshop, practicing, making mistakes, and fixing said mistakes. All good experience. I wanted to use transparency in the hair, my goal being to make it resemble hair over hair so I used layers and repetition of line strokes to create the more curvier hair pieces.
I created contrast by simply cutting off Cole’s right hand and making his remaining hand a bright red to make it truly hit the viewer when they look at it. I played with scale slightly as I am not used to drawing a 3/4th’s view. Something which I will rectify in future drawings. Also I decided to go with a nice blue color for his eyes to contrast against his black hair so they would stand out much better.
