Since I've started this painting in greyscale and i tried to use gradient maps and It just ended up being not as i wanted it to be in terms of colours I had to seek a different approach. And It just seemed too time consuming to do a paintover on top of gradient maps
I decided to go back in with a lineart and then do some colouring by selecting different planes of my picture and having them at different layers for now.
I am still figuring the stuff out. Never like the hands -> need to search for references.
(if you by any chance have a reference of the hand from this angles that i have, pls hlep )
and now that im posting it here i see that chest muscles are a bit too high and at a wrong angle
Hopefully I will finish this piece soon.
