moving on to coloring

Here I layed down the basic scheme.
As I said in the last post, the pic is already too cheescake to add a sunset color hue, so I went for a night setting instead, I also think it looks sexier, what do you think?:P

So, the palette is very limited, bunch of blues and pale purples, then just a dip of yellow for skin and highlights.
Here`s the basic idea. I chose bakground colors in harmony with this guy`s color palette.
I like it, but is sorta flat

So, I went ahead and greyed most of the colors out. I know I lost a lot of details in the background, but look how deep and rich his skin looks (Yumm...)

Now, the color match is more or less achieved. I may change some of the colors ahead, but won`t be as drastic.

Next time, I`ll start sketching shadows and basic lights, hope to see you then
