View Full Version : having been given advice on skin tones and proportion

I painted a "fantasy face" last night.


this is not meant to be fine art, I was just practicing, overworked the hair, especially on the one side. Now she is slightly turned away, but again I cannot decide about the bridge of nose> eye spacing. But I was aiming for better skin tones and a less flat look. Yoyito, I appreciate the tips. When I tried to redo Elaina it looked like I plastered makeup all over her, (so far, have not given up) so I started with a fresh face.

Any resemblance between her and anyone actually in existence would be actually incredible.

Bingobong, your gif for proportion was useful, I cheated on the mouth because my girl wanted fuller lips. But your guide is easily rotated to give the right tilt.

Your welcome. I am glad you could use it and you just earned yerself a new fan. I like this piece. Alot. But that's just me and crushes on blonde hair and green eyes.

WIP, she needs a lot of cleaning up! Quite unfinished yet....

If I do anything else with her, she needs something to hold... background, all that!
Go easy on me, have not done a lot of figure drawing. Just thought I ought to at least sort of finish what I had started!
