Sweet Science #3 WIP Final pt. II!

Remember when I said I was done with this print? Man, I was SOOOO lying!

I can't leave it alone. I'm still tweaking it, hoping to get it JUUUUUST right. More to come soon...

Are you fishing for suggestions from fresh eyes or just sharing, man? :)

Mike Hawthorne said...

From YOU, I'll take suggestions all day, homey ;)

Maybe add some more lighting to the shorts and sports bra. Help define her mass in space a bit more.

Maybe some highlights on her gloves. There should prolly be more spec on the peak of her finger wrinkles. As in: where the peaks of the wrinkled leather curled up into a fist gets hit by the light. Let me know if I'm not making any sense and maybe I can give you some examples.

Overall the piece is dope, just some little deets. These prints are hot, man.

Hey man,

I'm definately going back into the gloves. Besides the wrinkles, I want to wear them out a bit. Add some worn marks and scratches.

As for the clothes, I've been keeping them kinda flat through out all the prints. Not for any real reason other then I want to focus on other things. I may take you up on that though, and add a little modeling.

Making it hot as usual Mike.

My 2 cents?

Are you married to the BG color? I know how you kept the red and pinks in the other ones similar to the girls' clothes. . .

I'm just thinking you could pop that peuce green or whatever brighter, or yellower. What do i know.

Mike Hawthorne said...

That was my plan, keeping the BG the same as the clothes before (see a few posts down). It just never really worked. I liked it green, but wanted to warm it up more. I may still tweak it, but it's not a major issue for me. Right now, I want to settle on a final contrast with the modeling and the gloves.

Thanks for the cents, homey. I'll take all I can. I'm still ghetto enough to be shameless about that ;)
