Get Misty love

If you're working with a character dressed in red, the first thing you must sacrifice is subtlety.  Red is an unforgiving color.  Its value range starts with a medium dark, and only goes darker from there.  You can create beautiful value shifts within that range on your original, but less than a quarter of them will reproduce in print.  Luckily I'm not working here for reproduction, but I still want to take a dynamic approach.  I want to go very dark in my shadows to compensate for the value vampire at is red.

looking forward to seeing this finished!i know what you mean with using red.it's such a let down when you see it in print and it's not what you intended it to be.
