I've been primarily a portrait artist. And can do that very well. But this is one of the first times I've tried something fantasy. I feel like I'm a little kid being thrown into water for the first time!
Using a few refs for ideas.
I've studied color some but am definitely no expert.
I'm trying to, firstly, get the drapery right on this head piece and the right colors, along w/proper shadows and highlights. The way I've tried to do it is the more light, the less saturated the color. It's just being started but I'm not sure I like it. Definitely want a blue/aqua vibe.
