This angle really intensifies the largeness of the sketch. Kinda funky!
Put down about 85% of the color build for the skin tone.
Then I had to make a decision! Had a bunch of ideas….I debated between:
- Silver metallic polish
- Pink series of color (where the pinky is the lightest pink then the following nails are just a bit darker with the thumb being the darkest).
- Doodles, Designs, flowers, or various colors on a single nail
I liked doing the navy nail, because I was able to show reflection more. The flag nails are harder to show the shininess.
This is the picture I need to study. The colors in the inspiration picture are very dull, flat and monochromatic. I need to step away from the sketching then come back only in a visual way, I’m hoping I can “spot” where to shadow or highlight next.
