Ballerina – Older Child
I really liked the way this girl turned out, especially her dress. I like her skin tone much more also; it looked as if she is actually wearing pink tights with the dress, but I also noticed that her skin tone is too close to the color I made the dress. In the photo her dress is more of a cream color that blends in a lot with her surroundings, but I wanted it to stand out a little more. She is also in a lot of shadow, but I didn’t want to paint her that way. I think the background is much too light. I sharpened it up a lot in photoshop in the third picture here, but that is not how it looks. I am not sure what color to try and add into the background to bring her out more.
Any suggestions??? I need lots of help with this one!
Have a wonderful day, and give someone you love a big hug. 🙂
