I wanted to document my process better this time. Here is the initial sketch and then the color blocking. I switch back to the sketch to keep values in mind as I layer on the colors. For the color blocking stage I have been mixing colors and directly blocking them in without first placing in a base color. I found it to be way more efficient that way. I then focus the highlights and soften the features. I left the hair for last on a separate layer to play around with strands and textures.
