Portrait Practice 2

More portrait practice from photos. I like the way this one turned out a lot better--trying to stay away from opacity and round brushes on this one (as advised by my art director). So I used an oval brush and only a tiny bit of opacity. :P I'll try a rectangular brush with a little bit of tooth to it, tonight.

I actually found a forum of girls squealing over male models, and... being a girl who likes pretty men, I did a lot of 'right click/save as'... for REFERENCE. Yeah. All in the name of art, etc.

Taking a page out of my husband Xavier's book, last night I started painting portraits digitally from reference. Its mindless and fun, I plan on doing at least one a day--its a good way for me to get painting practice with faces/people, since I don't have access to a proper figure painting class any longer.
