Selfridge's III (Lady Mae again)



Another stab at Lady Mae. :) (I paint her one more time near the end.)

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

I actually started with a Burnt Sienna underpainting on this one but it didn't work out as planned, forcing me to color-block parts on top of it. After that it went much the same way as the first two. I like that the underpainting shows through a bit in the background though.

I also learned that I need to mark out compositional cues before I start exaggerating or else the face and anatomical proportions get too out of whack, usually shrinking like they did in the last one (Valerie Maurel).
