Digital Painting girl female sketch update

How to draw female character design.  Digital Painting girl female character sketch update.Here is an update on the previous sketch (female character design sketch). I painted more detail (still in gray scale) and trying to bring the leather texture from her jacket using values.
In general, object has its own reflective scale which make it interact with light differently. Like I stated previously metal and leather looks different because how it's interact with light. As painters, we have to take careful observation of these kinds of things because it will make us more efficient in capturing different materials when painting. Understanding lighting aka values more and more will take us to the next level.
Good exercise for this kind of thing is to paint a still life arrangement of apple, grapes right next to metal cup or teapot. It will make your understanding of lighting better and you then will know what I was talking about. :)
And LUCA (one of our favorite readers and friends) said, "I do that still life exercise about 5 times a week and it really helps me understand form and color."

Hi Xia, I see you're progressing on this sexy girl huh! :) Nicely done brother!

I do that still life exercise about 5 times a week and it really helps me understand form and color. I have been practicing in oils lately... I feel I can learn much more - even though it's a hella harder to paint in oils than in photoshop! I wanna move to figure painting in oils next.
[Just a small reminder, if possible maybe Jason Juan can possibly make an oil painting tutorial? He's a real master and I truly admire his skill!!] :)

In either case, thanks for EVERYTHING!!
