How often does one get the opportunity to draw someone that has one brown eye and one green? I wanted to celebrate that, thus the crop.
This is my first submission to the Portraiture forum. I've been hanging in the colored pencil forum, trying to learn. Picked up colored pencils last November and have been having a lot of fun since. Noticed I was passing the opportunity to draw a lot of things because it "had skin in it." I'm determined to get over that. Thanks to George924 for posting a flesh tone tutorial at the colored pencil forum. This is about my 4th attempt at portraits.
You oil painters are lucky in that you can mix color and then apply it. With colored pencil, all the colors have to be applied to the support -- no turning back.
C&C welcome, because I'm seriously trying to learn to improve my work.
