Hello guys, hope y'all are having a great time here, steemit has been a blessing to us, and I can stop putting up my art here.

CONCEPT:

The idea of wearing neck-rings was related to beauty because of the illusion of an elongated neck, Its is worn in a few African and Asian cultures to represent wealth and status.

I learnt a new style of painting portrait by digital painting academy this week so I appllied it on this artwork.

TOOLS USED:

  • Adobe photoshop

SKETCH:

  • I started out with a geometrical representation of my muse, as you can see below.

  • Then I sketched out the outlines

COLOURING

  • I first did the colouring on a black and whites, to figure out the tones for the RGB colouring.
