The End Is Nigh
This one is almost finished. I just need to work on the hair a little more (always a nightmare), clean up a few spots that are a little rough, and then except for the captioning, it's done. Your really lose a lot in a photograph too. The actual painting is over 42" (105cm) tall and quite nice to look at.
I'm really happy with the way the colors turned out on this one. It's warm, but a little more subdued. I toned down the lips and nails quite a bit, and went with gold jewelry instead of silver. Also, the blue background is actually quite soothing. Sometimes the colors in comic paintings can be a little jarring and either too hot or too cold. This one definitely isn't, and I'm sure it's something Goldilocks could appreciate.
