Selfridge's VI (Miss Mardle)



Miss Mardle. :)

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

I love the skewed smile she had in this shot. This is one of my better subtly exaggerated faces. After this piece I start to obviously exaggerate features. I also continued my use of a more accurate color comp, encountering none of the problems I had on the last piece. Since I used Payne's grey and Burnt Sienna to adjust the color comp, I could get away with toning the actual painting with just black on a 'soft light' layer. I still glazed with Burnt Sienna and a few other colors for the face however. I tend to use Cadmium Red Light for the middle range of the face and a green such as Viridian for the lower part.
