A Walk in the Night by Ametystical A Walk in the Night by Ametystical
My first digital painting. A mysterious lady walking in a full moon night. She wears a purple cape in order to not be recognized by anyone...


-> made in Photoshop CS3

-> reference photo fav.me/d1ylamw

A really nice job creating a mood and giving each part of the painting a texture of its own. You can tell that the cloth is smooth and hat her face is soft. The eyes look really nice also. There are a couple of things that could use a little adjustment.

You did a very nice job on the center line of her face. The nose and mouth are lined up nicely but I think her forehead is pushed a little too far to the left side of the image. Try using the Filters> Liquefy tool in Photoshop to nudge it back to the right. Along with that you can try widening her face toward the right just a little. I always have to go through this process after I paint a face.

To make the face pop out a little you could try putting a shadow across the top of her eyeballs. Eyelids cast a shadow downward and it gives the eye depth. It is very subtle but helps shade the eyes so they are not so bright.

P.S. You presented title and signature in a very lovely way. I love it when the signature is just as pretty as the painting.
What do you think?

This is a lovely painting. The dim skin tone; the texture of the hair; the folds of the cloak are all very well done.

However, I do find that the way her hairline is positioned throws of the face a bit. Also, the line of make up that wraps around her left eye and then hooks inward towards the nose should curve more with the nose; in and downward.

Hmm... I'm not sure, but it took me more than 24 hours ^^;

I know it's a lot of time but it was because I did with the mouse and because I was really indecisive about the colors, I changed it too many times.


Thank you! :la:

Your welcome..
I really can't believe that you did this with a mouse... i would have died.
I can never make up my mind with color (so i just do pencil drawings) you did a wonderful job at picking the colors

I always have a hard time to choose the colors too. I'm glad you liked the color scheme ^^
