Re: WIP....Baby Girl

Well, my daughter has critiqued it......and she is not nearly so kind.

So, I'll be working on it some more.

She has pointed out that the "bow" of her upper lip is not shaped right. I have the cute little upper curves of her lip too "tightly" close together. And her lips should be more "rectangular". *sigh*

My daughter is my harshest critic! But.....darn it.....she's right. (I hate that!)

But she does like the skin tones!

Re: WIP....Baby Girl

Don't give up, it is looking GREAT! She is a doll, in both the painting & the reference. My mother is a harsh critic as well. So much so, that I just don't share my work with her anymore. C&C is one thing, but she never has a kind word about anything creative I do.

Youre doing a marvelous job , keep plugging away, and you will have a cherished heirloom for generations to come!

Re: WIP....Baby Girl

Dee I think this is wonderful, you did a great job. Little tweaking of the lip seems about right and for me a very small thing but maybe you could think about it. Around the eyes...browbones, just blending out some shadowing a bit more would make those gorgeous eyes pop even more, give definition of the structure of that area too. I'm an eye finatic, get the eyes ya got the portrait is my thinking. Just what I see, check your reference and maybe you'll see the same thing...small thing but it's so gooood think that would actually polish it even more, but just my opinon cutie.

Re: WIP....Baby Girl

Thanks everyone!

Dan, Gotta make it clear....my daughter has a knack for picking out bits that aren't right...but she does see and comment on the good as well. While it might be frustrating at times, she is helping me. But if ALL she did was pick it apart & criticize I'd never let her look at them.


Elaine, the eyes! Okay,...........AFTER I've gotten some coffee into me. (No sense in even looking right now. )
