Also, how did you get that sexy, sexy texture on the upper edge of the cloak?
Basically, how do you do the things, and can I do it, too?
I hate to be vague with advice but the color choices were based heavily on feel. It's important to be sensitive to the feel of colors while picking them I think. I colored it by trying loads of different color combinations with the rough idea of what I wanted, and what color temperature of light was coming from where. So all the cool highlights faced one way and all the warms faced the other. Nope no smudge brush, just painterly brushes and a lot of patience haha. The edge of her cloak is based on the idea of edge variation, I aimed to have all 4 types of edges (hard, firm, soft, lost) present in the picture and it suited the cloak to have some lost edges made with textures, and also making love with photoshop.
