Hello friends !
I'd like to paint her portrait as a gift for a beloved friend of mine, but the photos I have are really bad in terms of values.
I chose one of them for the portrait, because it's the one which has the more likeness to the real lady, but it's overexposed.
Then I've got 2 other photos to see the correct shade of flesh. My friend is Korean and has this beautiful asian tone of skin, half yellow, half pale and delicate like china...
Here is the reference photo :
Of course, with such a photo, one can't see the shape of the nose, or checkbones, chin, etc.
It's a great challenge for me !
Here is my first try, but except the eyes (I made them in CP prismacolor), the likeness isn't good.
Any help would be greatly appreciated !
I'm going to post these other photos bluring her eyes because I don't want my friend's face roam on the web...
PS : she has a beautiful smile, but I really HATE to paint teeth !
