Ok I have finished this as far as I am going to I think. Not entirely happy with the hair, and don’t even talk to me about the shirt…
But I am happier with the face than any of my previous portraits. I am getting more adventurous and ruthless with shading. The eyes, I feel, are better than Mana’s portrait. Finally got those lips to look more attached to the face, but still hope to improve those in the next project.
Not entirely happy with the background. I may change it later. I think it is too bright. I am thinking… Greys. Feather brushes not by me, but don’t remember where I got them.
Done in Photoshop start to finish on the MacBook Air and with my Wacom Bamboo.
