Anna by badasstatguy Anna by badasstatguy
The idea here was that Anna was a statue that was painting herself into a real woman. I wanted to add a block of marble at the bottom with fragments broken away with her chiseled out of the marble,..then the rest of the image as it is so that it would look like raw marble, then a sculpture, then the top part being real. I guess I just never got around to finishing it.

Very nice! Seems like she's gradually painting herself into marble though, I'd shop the colors of the paints on her palette to more skin tones, the white is throwing me off. Faving anyway though!

Really??? I don't think the colors on the palette could be any more accurate to painting a flesh tone,..even the white. There is nothing on the palette to me that looks like it would be the same as the marble.

The white paint makes me think of the white marble *shrugs*. It's your call of course :)

The marble has a lot more grey and black,..which you don't see on the palette at all. I appreciate the input,..but I respectfully disagree.

Anna reminds me of that saucy Osha from Game of Thrones...

I think it's cool, but with the way she's holding the brush to me it looks more like she's a woman turning herself into the marble statue.

If you ever try something like this again I'd suggest the brush be aimed 180 degrees the other way (more or less) so it looks like she's stroking down with the brush, not up.

Regardless it's a cool idea!

but if you look at the colors on the palette you can see they are the colors you would use to make a flesh tone. I am not sure why the brush couldn't be held either way,..but thanks for your input.

Well, there was an awful lot of white on the palette.

Maybe it's just one of those perspective type things, but I'd say typically if one was holding the brush like that and painting oneself you'd be pulling the brush up the body, not pushing it down. With the white tones immediately below the brush it gives the appearance that's what's being left by the brush.

eh,..with the intent of keeping her breast covered with her brush arm, and having the upper half of her body as the finished part,..this is how it came out. I will do it your way next time.
