Re: My first portrait! (WIP)

8 hours later...I think I've finally got the face right. In my reference pic the older brother seems to be smiling a tiny, tiny bit...I hope I've captured it! I honestly don't know if I've got it right or not, but here it is. Tomorrow is continuing, and moving on to the hair.



Actually, looking at it he doesn't seem to be smiling. Argh.

Looking lovely. The older boy looks so caring and I love the little smile on the younger boy

Going to be a masterpiece. I just love it. The expressions on their faces are so sweet.

Re: My first portrait! (WIP)

The next portrait I do I'll make sure she cuts her kids hair first!!! Maybe grade 1 all over.

Here's where I'm at at the moment. It's looking hair-like, but not smooth enough yet. I'm hoping when I blend it'll smooth out and then I can see what I need to do. I'll get everything in first - maybe another 1-2 weeks (I'm away a lot next week). I'll update again tonight as I'm going to do another 3 hours post-workout.



Any tips/help/advice/poems-in-memoriam-a-good-drawing encouraged.

Re: My first portrait! (WIP)

I feel like I'm constantly trying to keep the hair in the correct place...things seem to be shifting a bit to the right. I picked up a mark or two and moved them left by 3mm or so and it's almost back in place!

Here's tonight's effort

That looks like a big mop of hair. Coming along nicely.

Re: My first portrait! (WIP)

Another 3 day break now...I'm almost working to schedule! 16 days left to finish it, not including break days. I've spotted a mistake with the younger boy's eyebrow, and the elder's head doesn't look quite right, but I've measured and checked and it is apparently correct. The bits at the top won't look correct until the background is in, whatever that may be.

Re: My first portrait! (WIP)

Another update - I still can't decide between a light background and a dark background! I've gone with light first to see what I think. Obviously it's only sketched in, it will be smoother!! I may yet decide to go darker behind the kids. Anyone have any suggestions?
