Golden Forest by Zindy Golden Forest by Zindy
Thanks to :iconkuiji: I decided to get out of my comfort zone when it comes to skin colour and go all orange/yellow/brown.
I've never felt very comfortable working in these colours + I have a thing for the very pale skin when it comes to drawing.

It was interesting to do this and I definitely got even more in the Autumn mood. I am very much looking forward to Autumn, it somehow suits my mood a lot lately. Until then I will draw Autumn.

The drawing is dedicated to my friend Sheryl, who loves Autumn and is currently undergoing surgery.

Pastels, marker and colour pencils.
21x29 cm | 8x12"

Thanks to :iconliam-stock: for the beautiful model ref: [link]

Beautiful. I love the colors, and her complexion. You should do more art like this, and use more brown for your characters skin color. :)

I'm not a big fan of yellow tones, but this is fantastic! The atmosphere of the piece is full of warmth that the tan coloration of her skin only adds to. It's a very lovely drawing:heart:

The folds of the dress is very nicely done, I love looking at it :)

Just curious, for the white highlights of the dress, do you just leave it blank, or use white color pencil?

The skin colors worked very well, despite your professed discomfort!! I feel like pale skin is more of a winter thing-- in the autumn, things are warm and brown. Also, the dress is very nice and smooth.
