Drink 7 Up!
Drink 7 Up! by Janna Fong (@jfong)

This week's entry for OSS. The theme is summer time.

I really had fun making this picture. I experimented with a few things, such as using real pictures and being a bit more messy with my coloring. I kind of like the effect! I also used a ref picture for the beach since I suck at thinking up scenery off the top of my head. XP I think the sand could use a huge amount of improvement, but I'm not sure how to make it look more "sandish." I also played around with the saturation so the colors would be slightly brighter, which I think captures a summer time effect.

I like the messy coloring effect too! ^^

The close up shot in comparison to everyone in the water really puts things into perspective. and I really love the eyes and hair. Very shiny. >3

I can't help but thinking "Largo!" when I take a look at the stuff in the background. XD

I think the messy shading works well with her hair and very well with the background. Her hair seems a lot more strandy rather than the very solid appearance you normally give your hair. Not that that's a bad thing, but this is a nice break from it and it flows very well. I love the painted look to the waves and you displayed depth to them very well, which I know is hard to do with water. The sheen in the middle of the background is a little too solid and almost looks out of place, but otherwise the water is fantastic and I think your sand looks great. Got a couple anatomy problems on the girl in the foreground, but everything else looks great. And I love the pattern you used for her swimsuit, too, it's very appropriate.
