I don't know how to use color, so... this is an experiment.  With like lighting and stuff.  I think he looks okay, but she could maybe use some shadows... somewhere... don't really know how that works.

    It helps alot to see how your shading is if they're interacting with scenery. Otherwise, the shadows lose their meaning in the mind's eye Smile

      A good point. I envision them kind of walking out of a tunnel into the light, which is why she's bright and his top/back half is in shadow. Maybe I will try doing a background... but if I have little experience in figure-drawing, I have infinitely less in scenery, so this may prove an insurmountable feat... haha.

        I do live drawing classes, and have found putting in scenery is essential for even that- posey pics are ok without it, but otherwise, the lack of location gives them a disjointed look that looks like they're not meant to be there. The background will also distract from any incorrect shading anyways Big Smile The glory of location ^^
