Pink Sweater by Makini90 Pink Sweater by Makini90
Illustrator CS5: Pen Tool, Gradient Tool, Feather Tool.

Still trying out different things when it comes to lighting and shading and finding ways to end my creative block when it comes to pin-ups. I tried out this method of doing one shape in a very very low opacity and repeating it over and over, using little gradients. The lighting and shading here I honestly feel I did make a better attempt that previous pin-up illustrations. Just a girl sitting in a chair wearing only a pink british flagh sweater black panties slipping off of her bottom.

Feedback is appreciated.
Enjoy. :)

In my opinion there is a massive improvement on your technique. The mixing of colors is simply great, I am very interested on watching your following artworks, hope to learn a little too ^^

I find your use of color in the sweater is beautiful, and incredible, and it's all very impressive. But I think your proportions are slightly off. The had doesn't really match the body very well.

Typo it's "head" sorry lol.
Anyway yeah thanks for pointing that out. Thing is that the original sketch that I was working on, the proportions were really off around the upper body. Alot of times when I'm transitioning from sketch to illustration I try to really clean up and smooth out any proportion errors, but the more that I look at sketch and the illustration side by side, the more I notice that the head is off in a lot of ways. I kinda feel like maybe I should resketch the sketch one more time to clean up any miss steps in proportions before i transition to color. Thank you so much for the critique. I really appreciate it. Glad you liked the coloring. This is where my creators block with these pin-up illustrations come from. Me wanting to nail the lighting and shading down and also me deciding on what coloring style to go for. If I go deeper, the real reason to where i have the creators block with this is me wanting to make the lighting and shading look natural or realistic since I keep disecting alot of digital work lately and look at the lighting and shading mostly on all of them and admire how it doesn't look like acutall shapes or brush strokes, but very natural and realistic. Sorry for the wall of text I can't help it. :P
