These are all great! I like the detail on the charcoal closeup, and the style of the older woman. The cut up pieces idea is pretty neat, too.
Done just the other day, main character from a series of games about a half genie, half belly dancer I guess? Turned out looking a little older than I intended, probably from basing it off a pose from a different stock image, but otherwise I think it came out ok. Experimenting with a mix of soft and bold shadows.
Was going to attempt another character from my own series but unfortunately Iím pretty busy the next few days.
Next piece is the first time youíve tried a new method with you art.
