I love the backlighting! Man I wish I could be as fashionable as Blackbird aaaa

So stylish and cool! Blackbird really has a mysterious allure, which is only highlighted here by the lighting, pose and facial expression. Wonderfully done, as always!

Quite an interesting style for her, it looks pretty nice actually :D.
The pose and expression fit the design to make her appear like she's feeling superior.
And to that the lighting adds for some nice atmosphere.

I always amazed by your beautiful artworks miss! Beautiful concepts and color combinations. If i can ask you, how do you always color the lights and shadows perfectly and logically? Did you use references or something?
shilin's avatar
I try to apply the lighting and colour theory knowledge I have on every picture (: If you google for guides on understanding these basics, you can construct the correct scenario with or without reference.
