Okay guys, so I am at my limits of actual knowledge here, and the rest of this will be experimentation on the lighting. Sooo, I thought I'd ask for advice on how to approach this at this point. I have established a base sort of lighting, and intend to do highlights and darks based on soul orbs that are around her. Ideally one or two would be in the hands of the soul-carriers. The soul carriers and souls are supposed to glow slightly. I have not accounted for this yet.
The background is not nearly finished, so no worries on that front. But for some reason the colors don't look right. Should it be more monotone?
So how to approach 3-5 diffuse light sources at various places around her? (Ideally one or two at least in the hands of the creatures, taking them to her.
And I know everyone is going to say "Use more references." Which normally I do, but I couldn't find enough of the right ones for this picture. =__= I apologize. I have used many references for this, but direct copying various pieces was impossible this time.
Anything else you deem relevant, also. Thanks so much for your time, guys.
