Hey everyone! I'm pretty new to posting on this forum (been reading forever though) and I thought it'd be cool to share some of what I've been doing and possibly get some feedback from people who probably have a much better idea about this sort of thing than me.

I've been dabbling with acrylic paints but I'm still a long way from being confident enough to share anything. However, whenever I have a bit of downtime I do a bit of digital painting on my iPad. Here's some in progress shots of a piece that I've been working on.

Started with a sketch in a note book, which I photographed and imported into the Imagine Pro app.


Then it's just a matter of painting over the top.



Here's where I'm currently at. There's still lots of detail to add - particularly the water, the island, the sky and the surfboard. I plan on adding some sort of tiki design to the board. I also need to figure out what to do with her empty hand - I'd like for her to be holding something but I haven't figured it out yet - maybe a shrunken head or something.


Cheers!

Yeah, was trying to be a bit stylistic but I think I agree with you. I'll slim her down a bit before it's complete.

'Volcano Thighs' ?

She's looking pretty good, though I'd get rid of the shadow next to the nose and put just a tiny triangle under it.

In the outline she has a really round 'cute' face, but that shadow completely changes her.

I was expecting some big ol pearlies too, now he mouth is so small.

Hey, there's nothing wrong with a little "junk in the trunk"!

Welcome to TC Elgarbo, hope to see lots more of this style.

Thanks for all the feedback. I've taken some of it on board and continued to add some detail.

Most significantly, I've carved her thighs down significantly. Started adding detail to her face and body, detail to the water and changed up the eruption. Added some highlights to her hair too.

Finished! Still some bits that I'm not entirely pleased with, but it's a good way to dust off the cobwebs and get back into drawing and colouring.

I really enjoyed your step by steps. It's going to be hard to compete with computer apps.. Especially because I don't know how. This is a really fun picture. Wendy

Went out, bought some acrylics, paint brushes and a canvas and started knocking out my first painting since I left high school. This is mostly an experiment to get the hang of how the paint works, but I'm happy with how it's turning out.
