Selfridge's II (Valerie Maurel)



The repentant Valerie Maurel. :)

This is the second (of fifteen) in a series of practice pieces painted in Manga Studio 5, based on screen caps from season two of 'Mr Selfridge'.

I color-blocked this one much like I did the first. I got in the habit of toning/glazing with Payne's grey and then Burnt Sienna on 'soft light' layers in lieu of an underpainting, which had the effect of deepening the shadows and color.

In addition to working on my painting process I also tried to develop my caricature skills. Some of the faces in this series become quite exaggerated, especially toward the end.
