cherry hood by Nina-D-Lux cherry hood by Nina-D-Lux
this was done over 2 art lessons as part of our course work. we had to re-create (aka.copy) a painting done by one of two influencing artists. our choices were either cherry hood or belinda eaton, and i thought cherry hoods stuff was nice : )

okaaay so i dont like this girl that much...her eyes like cross-eyed or there just in the wong place. well she just looks a little "off" to me haha

i dont know cherry hood but it's the coolest name D:

it looks good. nice to see you working with colour :)
yeah the eyes are off, perhaps you could just draft the eyes in pencil before colouring them in?

the hair is so un-nina in this, too! :O
it's not glossy and gorgeous.. it looks really flat =[
were you supposed to copy it perfectly, or was there some creative license allowed?

hey this IS the hair with creative license, before it was just solid dark brown. i added a bit of highlights and red in there ...and i couldnt do big fluffy eyelashes or glssy lips or highlighted eyes....but hey it cant have much of me in here if it had to be a direct copy. But next ive got to draw myself in cherry hoods style...with paint! im scared of paint!

haha. well i reckon it worked out fine.
and paint is a hard one =/
i'm okay with acrylics, i've never had the balls big enough to touch oils. they can stay the hell away xD
though while you're in school, experiment =)
i'd love to see what you can create with all that imagination of yours :D
