EDIT: Added 9 and 10 for a more wintry January!

Here are my possible color schemes for Ms. January!  I'm pretty sold on number 8. Which one do you all like?  I'm hoping to try for something that channels the lovely deep color of the Garnet birthstone.  How I am jealous of those of you with this birthstone!

As ever, you can see a more detailed write-up on my creative process for this piece and others at my private WiP art journal which is only accessible to my patrons over on Patreon.

5 is my favorite, but 7 and 8 tie for second

Personally, I think 4 is the best. But if you are leaning toward 8, I think the pink in 7 frames her better.

I really like the colour scheme for 8, but I think her blonde hair is just too light and prefer the browner shade you've used in 1.

7 The golden mustard tone of 8 doesn't stand out well enough like the pink does on 7. Which is a surprising thing, because pink is my least favorite color.

Her skin is quite fair and her blonde hair is quite pale and similar to the background. What if the blonde was warmed up a little bit? Just enough to separate the hair from the background a little and frame her face?

I have to agree with you on 8. At first I didn't realize that it was a birthstone theme and I was going to suggest cooler colors, but damn, that garnet looks so good. Excited about these!
