Much more dramatic, Sandra, with the darker values in!

Re: Portrait Challenge for July/August!

Yeah, Sandicat, this is a "make-my-day" law state! Don't wanna see you here after sunset, podner!

Here it iz, pushy Oz Chica!



I thought I had the face finished, but now that I see them side by side, I have the features too coarse...I need to give him that idealized Greek treatment. This is Ben Franklin I'm painting, isn't it?

Back to work again!

Re: Portrait Challenge for July/August!

I found some fantastic sculpture portraits on this website and downloaded them. These are some I thought would be a little different from the more formal poses, and I love the variety and expressions in them!

Don't let this scare you away, nobody expects you to make a study of everything posted here (and I hope that last one is nobody you know)!

Re: Portrait Challenge for July/August!

Sandra, we're kindred spirits ... that was the one that attracted my attention the most, too, and why I stopped to see what else was there! Your tiara lady is looking great!

Re: Portrait Challenge for July/August!

I love the images, Nancy. Am I the only one who sees any likeness beetween the devil (or Faun maybe?) and Jack Nicholson?

Re: Portrait Challenge for July/August!

Dominika, I wonder why? Couldn't be "The Witches of Eastwick," could it?

Sandra, you do so much drawing that I can see why you would tire of black, white and gray! I'm eager to see what you do with that charming face!

Re: Portrait Challenge for July/August!

@ Nancy - wonderful to see him emerge into 'life' like that! I love that gray

@ Sandra - She's gorgeous! Some very skillful work in the hair, and on that complicated shadow pattern under the chin, not to mention the crown. Wow!

Re: Portrait Challenge for July/August!

Wow, these are all looking great so far! And everyone is so quick. My next update is fairly minor. I refined her features and the shape of her face. So hopefully she looks a little bit more like a lady, and a lot less like a strange robot



I have started adding value, so hopefully in a few days I can get all of the values in place, and post again to get a bit of feedback. I may also have to try that first new one that Nancy posted! Lots of great references here.
