Fanaa by Zolaida Fanaa by Zolaida
Fanaa wanted to "change", she wanted to feel different... But she did not dare to cut her hair. Instead of it, she made braids around her head. But her new hairstyle could not change her state of mind, she is still very sad. She misses Syld so much...

Commission for the oh so lovely :iconelyra-coacalina: and her beautiful character Fanaa :heart: I hope she's to your liking dear :)

Original size's 1750 x 1850 pixels^^
* used myself as a ref, a couple of other pictures and a ref for the flowers: [link]

First, let me say your art is fantastic! I have just finished writing the first in a four part book series and was looking for inspiration for my cover image. The main character is a lovely, sad, pale girl with long black hair and shocking lilac eyes...I was astounded to come across this piece as it is EXACTLY what I pictured in my head as I described her in the book! I was wondering if you would allow me to use it as my cover art. I am publishing independently...so there may not actually be any money in it for me, but I would love to discuss permission to use this image with you! If you are interested...or want to tell me to buzz off ... please drop me an e-mail at stephanie@boldsystems.com

i wish i could paint like that. im just not getting used to skin tones yet. And i know this is a stupid question but do you draw from your imagination or from references

:iconzolaida:
Zolaida Featured By Owner Aug 31, 2012   Digital Artist
Thank you, and it is not a stupid question :)
It depends, really. When I first started out I was looking much more at references then I was from my imagination. As I started learning things, I started to draw much more from my imagination, and now only use refs when I'm doing studies or when I want to try out a lightning that I've never drawn before. Never base your picture on one reference only; it will look like a copy (unless that is intended of course with a study) and you will not learn to "see" things. Once you get the hang of things, it becomes much more easier and fun to draw from imagination. It takes time and practice but it's worth it :) Hope this helped a bit?

hahaha xD
hmm always check your values. You can clearly see them by changing the picture into black and white. You can see that way if the lighting and shadows are in balance. If they are, the picture will be more interesting, natural and pleasing to look at. For the rest; never use black and white in a normal color picture. Shadows and lightning always have color. You could probably find some tutorials about what I just told you or something if you are still confused :) Good luck!
