Her face

As you can see, the face on the right (more of an oriental look) is a little bit more appealing than the face on the left. I felt it was a good idea not to add the lips, nose, eyebrows etc. It look's better this way ;)

The warp treatment for the face and forearm...

Next, i used the Liquify tool to get the reflections to 'bend' or flow across those tricky face contours ( otherwise not possible with the 'WARP' tool ). Direction is very important here, you can end up doing this for hours! :) but, well worth it!

also keep in mind about the 'brush pressure' , increasing it's value will distort the image very quickly! ... slow down ... keep the value at a minimum level, you'll get pretty cool, interesting warps!

And here it is, after the Liquify treatment!

color pass screenshot along with reflections...

Celine :)...



Reference images for the background setup, followed by the flat color block and final grey shading with the runway light effects. coloring is yet to be done ;)



Proceeding with the other robots gazing at Celine!

I stuck with the same technique for the color process, only this time, the little robots won't have any reflections.
