2B's design was too gorgeous for me to pass up. Since I love painting with bright colors, it was a challenge to work within her black and white color scheme. I tried to find some ways to brighten things up!
I loved this game, there is so much more to it than the eye candy, though I enjoyed that part also! ^.^

I really think you should paint limited colour palettes like this more often because you've
done a truly fantastic job. The splashes of colour in the background really accent the
black and white palette of 2B. And really, who can resist a black and white colour palette
when there are so many fun things! The feathered pieces on her sleeves, the design on
her dress, the dress itself, the sword, her hair... There is so much to love!
I really appreciate it ^.^ I actually have been thinking of restricting my color palettes a little more as a challenge/exercise... When I do fan art, I like to be true to the characters for the most part, but I feel like it may be time to experiment some more with personal pieces. Thanks for your comment, hope you are doing well! <3
With original work, you would have so much more freedom to experiment with colour palettes
than with fan art obviously. You want to stay true to the characters and when they are highly
colourful, then it doesn't allow you to play with limited colours.
I think it would be a really fun challenge, and one I'd like to do too. I've only done it a couple of
times, limiting the scheme of my renders, but it was really fun and I did like the results. We should
both do this! Like a monthly challenge, for the art you create in that month should have a
limited palette. It doesn't even need to be "boring" by sticking to black and white, but just any
combination of two or three colours and seeing what we can come up with.
I have been trying to work on "loosening up" with my brush strokes in some areas, instead of detailing the entire image. I want to allow areas of less importance to be more painterly. I still struggle with it a lot, but I am glad that you were able to notice some of that in this piece! Also, thank you for your comments on her hair, I think I may have enjoyed that part the most! I always love painting hair, and white hair is especially captivating for me! I really appreciate the kind words and I'm so happy you enjoyed this piece! <3
This said, it's not your character, you're doing fanart. And you did a great job with that Madeleine! I really like the print you gave to the cloth on the back part, it looks like you put in a texture and a bit of shine giving it a leathery look to the dress. Really love your attention to shading and lighting details, phenomenal as always. I think her sleeves could've looked more like feathers or have more feathers but that's a minor detail IMO. The natural look of the hair blowing in the wind looks amazing!
Overall, I may not like the look of the game but think you did another fantastic character painting.
P.S. Would LOVE to see your artstyle with Bloodborne characters... Know you're busy, just a thought.
I'm really starting to like this girl and I haven't even played the game yet (though I do follow her voice actress on Twitter who's been so extremely excited to be part of it...she did such a good job! )
