Maori II

Hi everyone! What do you think?How does the sepia version of my Maori eco warrior hold up against the (limited palette) colour version? I was working away for some time yesterday on the version up top and could not see any improvement for the longest time.

Apart from the mistakes I built in*, I now think it may be the better one. Or just different? *like ruining the gras skirt for one thing, tsisss!

PS: granted, natural colour scheme for a Maori environment may be more cerulieans, blue seas and skies and luscious greens… maybe I was feeling nostalgic, but I like muted and reduced palettes.

And I am still very happy how the pose turned out.

Think I should give a more brightly coloured version a shot?
