Kadie continues

See, now with the darker shadows developing under her chin and within her face, the reds feel more balanced. I used a lot of drybrushing on her face to smoothly blend the facial features. With children, it's very easy to make them look unnaturally older by creating harder edged lines in the face.

The addition of the green sunglasses also complements the strong reds and balances the color elements.

Here it looks like she's had a sunburn, but I wanted to warm up her face, particularly her cheeks, before adding the cooler shadow elements.

The blue in her hair is actually masking fluid. I wanted to reserve some of the highlights and wispy edges of her hair.
