Retro – Stages During Drawing – How Did I Create This Work

Hello, today I will tell you which steps my artwork has been through. I’ve already taken a video, so you can understand better.

First of all, I placed the object in the center as always. I advise you to be careful when measuring. Sometimes we can accidentally hold the ruler at a different angle from 90 degrees. This could cause us to determine wrong the center point. Or another point you want to set. I drafted the drawing and then I started to the painting. The paint I used at first was a metallic gouache paint. I made a golden color by mixing yellow, black and orange metallic colors. I wanted a layered look on the neck. Therefore I used lots of paint in this part. I tried to get a layered look with brush strokes. But I could not finish the paint on the palette. Although I use plenty of paint. And I wrapped the palette with stretch film. Because I had plans for the paint on the palette.

I preferred hazel iris. And I used metallic white gouache paint again for sparkles in the eyes. I used a normal white color for the sclera. Because I did not want to exaggerate the sparkles. And then I continued to do tonalities on the body.

I decided to use the paint on the palette that I covered with the stretch film as an effect on the corners. This way I did not waste my dye and I created a beautiful effect. You can use this little trick too. Actually, I need to use enough dye to paint the area. But sometimes I cannot adjust this proportion. And in such cases this method is very useful.

I preferred brown hair. I got this color using black, yellow and red. You may need to add more colors depending on the tone you want. This is your choice and your creativity. I preferred metallic blue colour on background. I applied two coats. After then I used buttons as earrings. I used these buttons on different places too 😏. I like to use different materials on my artworks. For example I use nail polishes on my many works. And I completed the drawing thorough passing over the main lines.

You can buy this artwork on my Etsy Shop.
