Harmonious background colours
The background must be the graphical support of my composition, but also integrate with my character and other foreground elements. I select her most saturated colours to integrate them behind her. The red and blue structure the composition and are balanced by the black leather and the grey of her trousers. I add some colours for greater visual interest.
Polishing details on the character
I continue to improve the volume and details on and around her face. I also change the direction of her gaze, so that she’s looking where she’s going! Her dreadlocks don’t react as normal hair so I imagine the weight of them and place them accordingly. I also add more reflections of her skin on the mask.
