Re: November Classroom: PORTRAITURE

Shells - LOL! I think it's a great idea to sketch the subject first then transfer onto your painting surface, I always do this.

JoeJoe - Next year is just fine with me, so long as you PM me to let me peek when you're done!

Dewi - Well done, it really shows that you have worked on your blending. Your portrait is consistant throughout now, which is what matters far more than smoothness.
You have come so far on your very first portrait, are you pleased so far?
Just a couple more tweaks to give it some punch/life and you're ready to move on....

Bump up the highlights now everything is dry.
The pupil areas of the eyes need to be darker, then bump up just the two main highlights with white, leaving the other highlights as a feint reflected light.
Don't forget the tiny highlights among the bottom eyelashes.
The shadow area under the chin could do with going darker a tone or two.
The crease in the corner of the mouth/cheek needs adjusting slightly outwards and upwards to make her smile. It's a small adjustment that will really make a difference.



See how the final touches add life to the portrait, how the mouth adjustment makes her look more relaxed and content?

It is a super portrait and all your hard work is really showing.

Re: November Classroom: PORTRAITURE

Anita yes I'm very pleased so far and hope nothing goes wrong when colour is in. After your adjusting in the corner of the mouth it really make smile not half smiling ..yes relax and the eyes are more sparkling/alive. No need highlight on the upper eyelid .. the real colour of the eyes and hair is dark brown, thanks.

Re: November Classroom: PORTRAITURE

Anita,
Sorry I did not make it in time, I was waiting on a pic of my friend and I also couldn't get my prefered surface locally (Blick solved that prob)

Anyway I need your advice. The pic I received from my friend's wife is not what I hoped. I was able to play with it in Irframview so I could see the eyes!!!
The real thingy is: I have to adjust the pose!

Have you done this before, my drawing skills are moderate. Any tips or pointers would be welcome.
The picture was taken from above, I will "transpose" it to just below eye level and turn him a bit.

When I start, probably tonight, I will post it in a thread (or maybe not) but thought this was a good place to get your attention.
