WDE 20170331 Sisters WIP

This portrait gave me a very hard time and I wanted to stop many times, but I'm glad I haven't because I think it's starting to turn out better now.

Love the reference photo, but it was almost all midtones and it was extremely difficult to model the face when the shadows and skintones are almost all the same tone. I had to resort to converting the reference to greyscale just so I can continue.

Struggling with the blond hair, but will come back to fix that once the faces are mostly done.

Still a long way to go! I probably can't work on this during the week, but maybe I can finish it next weekend or maybe the weekend after. I work veeerrry slowwwww.. So far this has taken about 10+ hours already and it's so small! (I'm so out of practice!)

Beautiful! Even though it's a WIP, I love it as is. Can't wait to see what else happens!

Lovely graphite drawing. You've really captured their happy expressions. I like the crop too.
