Hi everybody, I painted this snake eye and cause I've taken some pics of it decided to post it here... I originally printed 1 reference and 1 copy to lay out the guide lines. Used my iwata Hi-line HP-CH and the High Performance HP-BR with wicked colors on aluminum panel. Next started to cover the guide lines with 4:2:2 (sepia-detail black-reducer) while erasing some highlights at the same time. 3-4 layers of paint and erasing-scratching in between them. For the eye I only used the fiber pen and plus the electric eraser for every other texture. It wasn't so difficult as I thought cause I'd correct every mistake I made with the paint. Brite transparent yellow plus a little bit of transparent ultramarine blue is used for the eye and once again started his skin with light brown making sure I keep his highlights. Moved to dark brown and continuing erasing some highlights softer this time. I've tried to set the backside of the snake out of focus, keep the eye area in focus and slightly out of focus the front side of the eye. Added some highlight hitting his eye and called it done! I've noticed then that the course of light isn't compatible with all the highlights on his head but what the heCk, still managed to make progress in airbrushing and certaintly learned a few extra things! Thank you and enjoy! Vives!
