I´ve decided to show you some steps of the piece I´m painting now. I´m working in a spirit of the flowers, a beautiful creature with moth wings, petals in her face like a venetian mask and a lot of diferent flowers in her head.
At first I did a rough sketch and a lot of annotations to put in paper the general idea (picture 1), then I needed some references before start the final line sketch. I had a lot of fun looking for documentation, I discovered many awesome and huge moths with very beautiful wings and wonderful colors, they really amazed me. Also I was looking for some pictures of Ikebana and other floral arts and I found a lot of beautiful examples that inspired me a lot.
When I had all the documentation necesary I did the final line sketch (picture 2), after that I sketched the lighting (picture 3) and the color (picture 4), in this last step I fixed some drawing mistakes and some things to do the composition works better.
I want to achieve a beautiful atmosphere, a lot of details and play a lot with the colors on this one. I hope to finish this piece in a few days.
Thanks for watching and I hope you´ve enjoyed with the sketching process :)
