I forgot I did this much earlier in the year. Parts of it I'd rather be finished, but I'm not too very interested in revisiting it at the moment.

I don't know, she's kind of pretty too.
Also I like how you reflected the light off her hair and skin. It makes the picture more realistic.

wholly shit guyz

I think I started by making a mid tone the darkest color (reddish color), then carefully adding in the darker one (dingy brown). The lightest color was the background (pictured in the first link up there). After I got a lot of the details in, apparently I did this:

"I duplicated the painting in a new layer, and then opened up Levels (Ctrl+L) to make it higher contrast. Then I used Black & White (Alt+Shift+Ctrl+B) to make it greyscale. I then set that layer to multiply and lowered the opacity to 68%."

And added in highlights and adjusted more details after that. I think starting out on a cool-colored background as a baseline and adding warm colors in helped a lot in the variation.

So where you duplicated the layer, increased contrast, then turned it grayscale - was the image too saturated? Is that why you did that?
