Oo... Now I feel kinda bad on how lazy I ended up being with the skin. This was supposed to be just a quick practice doodle, and the skin was actually green originally. But then I ended up using way too much time on the background, and changing everything else to match...

I remember initially (not in this piece, but way back when I was first trying this palette) feeling like bright-pale-red would maybe be a bit gray and cold for skin, but in the end it always seems to end up looking really nice, so I guess my intuition needed some adjustment...

Anyway, thanks for the comment :)

Thanks for the comments everybody. I'm so happy to submit something again :) Been too long...

This is interesting; coz the primary uses I had in mind for the bright-pale-red color was skin and sand!...and the challenge was to find a balance so it would work ok in both contexts. This would have been a great image to have back then!

...and I love the hat!

Oh man - you've unleashed my innards. I just love geeky girls with glasses and big tufts of hair. Beautiful work!

The sandy details look really convincing especially with how you used this palette.

Cool work, such a fun application of the palette!

Wonderful style. The rendering of the sandcastles is particularly nice. There are lots of great, characterful details all over this piece.
