bethewand replied to your photo: Audrey 2.5 has been painted and she came out just…
in addition to quality improvement, I think there is also a good amount of contrast as far a simplicity and detail. Her earrings are more simple/better, but her hair has a great amount of highlighting/depth.
Yeah, the earring was the first thing I wanted to change, because the original Audrey was my second ever painting, so I didn’t realize when I designed it that that ear ring was too complicated and small to make it look right. I found that out quick. I think the gauged ear is a lot more simple, looks a lot better and is a better all-around idea for that matter.
The hair was the other thing that I wanted to make sure I changed. Though it looks fine all black, the highlights definitely improve it 10-fold.
