Selfridge's IX (Kitty Hawkins)



Kitty Hawkins. :)

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

I used an underpainting successfully for the first time with this piece, partly because the reference suited it. The underpainting was done in a Burnt Sienna/intense orange and I used a textured brush to let it shine through, which really helped tie the colors together, and imparted a soft glow. Kitty had a really strange lip shape to her expression which I didn't quite capture/exaggerate well. I ended up using the mesh transformation tool to help reign it in but I'm still ambivalent about it.

(Finished March 20, 2015)

More tomorrow; thanks for looking!
