I was recently asked to join a portrait drawing group. I've never been into portraits, never thought I did very well, and with a little practice, I must say I'm enjoying it and getting better, even getting a likeness. These were done completely in Painter 9, in a 20 minute pose.
I've decided that I should work on these some more, but don't want to lose the fresh unfinished look either. ALSO, I am hoping to come up with something with some real WOW value for a show. A local organization is having a major show and has recently discovered that there are digital artists in their midst, and have developed a new category for digital, but there are many members who know nothing about digital art and seem dubious about the whole thing
At this point, these pieces are purely digital painting/drawing and belong in Painter's Alley, but I've posted it in the main Digital channel as well, because I'm open to any and all suggestions.
So please, let me know what you think and if you have any suggestions, I'd love to hear them.
