I've left the Layers palette in again, as I did in the Self Portrait WIP
, just to show my routine for separating stuff. It works for me.
This is about 3½ hours in. I'm still torn. Part of me likes it, but a larger part doesn't. I think I'm missing my vector outlines.
As before, the sketch lines and colour palettes (one for the hair, one for the face) are temporary - having them on their own layers is a great help, easily turn off and onable...
So yeah, it's progressing, but I'm probably going to reinstate the outlines like I've used on previous pieces.
Cheers for looking.
Edit: lowered the opacity of the sketch lines since they were blocking out most of the detail. Also added some vector outline detail.
*I added 'paraphernalia' to the keywords. If you were looking for paraphernalia but found this, I 'm very sorry.
