Deirdre - you captured his likeliness: the eye expression and mouth.

Re: Paint/draw from the same reference - August 2005

Thanks you Janet & Maria....I hope to work some more on it...especially as I'm getting a likeness now! I was looking for another ref when I spotted that I'd saved this one to do later...he's one very cute looking brother Maria!

To me, it's almost identical. I don't it is identical but almost because saying it is, would make it him! LOL.

Re: Paint/draw from the same reference - August 2005

Dee, WOW what finish. The way you created the hair is something great. I can feel the texture. And the reflections in eyes are also treated very well.

Yes you got the likeness too. One question, did you drew the sketch free hand or with grids? It seems to be freehand. And if this is done freehand, then it is awesome. Great work.

Re: Paint/draw from the same reference - August 2005

Thank you Maria! Yes, I do it freehand...but I check my work with a pair of dividers, to make sure I get the main placements right...eyes nose mouth. I also turn it upside down!

And this technique really helps. Sometimes when you dont know whats going wrong with your painting, and how to correct it, just do this and it really works. It could be a tip for newbies.
