Carol Moore says: Beautiful! You are so fast and I am so slow. I think I try to get to detailed and then it takes me sometimes a while to find the right reference photo. ~ Reply?
katerina Koukiotis says: thank you carol xoxox i remember one time i only did 3 sketches, i dont think you're slow i think aceos go by a bit faster ;)plus i have more free time, what i learned by doing the sketch fest for the last 3-4 months for bigger artworks i mostly do linework sketching and for smaller ones like aceo size i add color which makes it go faster than shading only the drying part may take a little while. When working from references what i do is have a folder that comes handy if i need to look something up that helps,maybe you can do something similar :) ~ Reply?

katerina Koukiotis says: thank YOU lisa, ellen, corrie so much xoxox i love orange i think it brings out any skintone or color scheme makes it pop up-to get the hair color i first applied organge but it was too pale so i added another layer of red paint this time and it made it a bit more vibrant :) I think hair stylist should do the same mix the colors to get nice shades of red..;) :) ~ Reply?
