Hi there! I'm Morgan. I draw. I do a lot of portraits. I love my Copic markers, and my Copics love me. I also made a comic book with UC Berkeley's Center for Race and Gender, about Black superheroines. It's cool and you can find it in my gallery.
This is a cool piece. It's color scheme is very centered: rather than very contrasting red and blue, red becomes pink, and blue moves towards purple here. It keeps the focus away from the colors and onto the composition. And it's a good composition. There's a good action line, reinforcing the character's emotion. The abstraction in the background further highlights the action line, and it's jagged edges make us feel almost like the world behind her is shattering. I really like the coloring outside the lines. It feels like shaking and noise and intensity.
Judging from some of your previous work, you experimented a lot here. And it really payed off here. The linework is neat. The shading works for this character. And the coloring outside the lines gives it that extra something. Good job. I'd like to see you keep on experimenting!
Hey, thank you so much! With every portrait I draw, I learn a little something new. I'm always challenging myself with new styles or to focus on getting new features right. This picture was done on gray paper, which I'm experimenting a lot with now. Again, I'm glad you like it!
