    Blue and yellow light practice

    This is a study I did using the character Akali from KDA on the popular blue and yellow lighting scenario. I used this photo reference of a different woman and I think it turned out nice. I would still love any critique anyone might have on painting. Thank you very much!

    In lighting conditions as extreme as this, try to get a neutral zone between the two extremes.

    Thank you for the advice. After a few days from painting this I do see that I didn't even copy the lighting in the first image very well. It seems like my colors just from orange to bright blue abruptly.

    When the lights overlap, the part both lights shine one gets brighter, and the colors mix
    So in your case it would go a little bit into the green. Hard to see for me if you did that already XD
    Btw I got this knowledge from Gurneys Color And Light book, so it's grounded.

    It seems like the yellow light is not reflecting as much on the clothing as I would expect. So her chest is under strong light but the rest of the scene under variable amounts of light.

    The lighting on the hair hanging down is really neat, I like it a lot. The shape and color variation on the face is good too, it conveys variation and shape in a nice painterly way. The back of the hair, the lips and the iris seem very flat by comparison. Its a cool stylistic choice, but I wonder if it would look better with variation in those areas to create a greater sense of homogeny.

    Cool stuff.
