Heat Vision on in 3...2...1...... by AlexGarner Heat Vision on in 3...2...1...... by AlexGarner
Testing out new techniques on a character I've never drawn before. Skipped grayscale and went straight to color; ended up leaning back on my typical methods so I'm hoping to push it a bit further next time.

BTW, the great work of Supergirl artist :iconanjum: inspired me to paint this. You should check out his gallery. Terrific stuff.

Nice Alex, the only thing I noticed was Her face is really polished compared to the whole piece. I wasn't sure at first if that was because you wanted to have the skin be smooth, but it was only on her face. I'm liking the big brush technique. ;-D

Yeah, women's faces are the biggest struggle I'm dealing with in this style; It's really hard to make them look soft and pretty using the same sharp edges and rough sketchy strokes. Still working on a solution.

My opinion is you did it just right. With the painterly style you want the point of focus to be the most polished leaving everything else sort of unfinished. It's simulating the human eye. We lock the the clearest thing first (her face) and the rest is rendered by the brain in the peripheral vision. For this style I think you've got it.

Greyscale totally gets in my way sometimes. I've got to use it for thumbs but then I end up wrestling with it when I add color. Often I wind up just painting over the thumb and giving up the values I set. Badass painting by the way.

Love the body language of the hands! And if you're looking to challenge yourself color-wise, I think more contrast between light and dark would really make this picture pop. :)

Yeah, that was the challenge here by going straight to color. It would have balanced better starting with a grayscale value study.
