Captain Janeway WIP

Another Star Trek Voyager fan art, this time Captain Janeway. The screenshot is from the episode Sacred Ground. I'm not satisfied with it yet but have looked at it too long to see what's wrong with it. This is only my second portrait style, so I'm on a steep learning curve. C&C welcome.

Re: Captain Janeway WIP

Capt. J seems to have been caught with her knickers down. Nice rendering

Re: Captain Janeway WIP

A good start. One thing I see is the shoulder is very different. Also the line of the shadow along the side of her nose is quite different.

I don't like doing portraits myself, everything has to be just right. lol

Red face Re: Captain Janeway WIP

Agree about the shoulder. Also the back is a bit too skinny. I love the Sargent quote, "A portrait is a picture with something wrong with the mouth." It occurs to me whenever somebody tries to reproduce the "Girl With a Pearl Earring." The mouth is the point d'appui of that masterpiece, IMHO. Funny, in its day it was regarded as trivial. But, then, that is true of much of Vermeer's work. I like to look at it when I am in certain moods. Keeps me humble. Very humble.

It does look better now.

Re: Captain Janeway WIP

Looking good!

I would check her irises, she needs a little bit if the white showing underneath.

Amazing that this is only your second, you have a good eye for portraits!

It's looking good, I agree on the mouth quote, it's always my downfall!
