【佰日梦】羊毛毡人物色彩细节分享--How to choose wool colors when needle felt portrait.
I've tried some parts of body portrait by needle felting last week.
I was dedicated on how to choose colors so the handfelted work can be beautifully finished.
First step, notice the background. If the whole feeling is chill, then the colors I chose to make the lip are all from cold light pink to dark purple. I've never use brown or coffee colors as the lip line in this clip.
While as a contrast, this up coming lip work, considering its warm flaxen background, I chose a warm maroon as basic color.
You need to spend time focusing on notice the colors in a portrait. Take this lip as an example, we would normally feel it only contains those 3 colors when just glancing.
But in fact, the high light is also need grades of colors to be realistic. So the actual wool roving I've been used are 6 colors.
Some won't make so many shades when create 3D portrait, because there're shadows already existed, but this is not how you can do in the 2D effect. So don't be lazy, keep sharpen your eyes!
You can see the difference when put these two lips together. one is more young and chic, one is more sexy.
So, pay attention to the color combination.
And finally this yellow eye. I really adore this one. I was quite surprised by this resualt because all the colors I use were grades of bright yellow, of course except the darkest brown and black. But it told me that even bright yellow could be combined with dark brown and made a harmoney decay effect.
So the point of needle felting a beautiful portrait is keep trying, practicing, then reflect, and repeat this cycle again and again.
To check if your colors worked right then make the photo black and white, so you can see, if the structure still exists, then it's right.
And this upcoming soft sculpture was made yesterday.
I intend to wool felted a little girl, so the colors I chose were from cold pink and cold turquoise.
Girl and the bunny!
Pay attention to the grades of shadow under her frown.
Final, right side were the basic wool colors, I didn't listed all the wools, just the massive colors I used in this portrait, so you can have a basic feeling of how to use color combination.
