Portrait II by tremblinglight Portrait II by tremblinglight
A study of a female face... I think she was on the OC or something? I don't really watch any non-animated television.

I like almost everything about this piece but the eyes. They stick out, but not necessarily in a good way. The eyelashes are too black so that they make the eyes look outlined. They also lack the texture that makes the rest of the piece so rich.

Other than that, you've got a great start on portrait studies.

I agree with you... If I were to do this one over I definitely would not make her eyelashes so black. I should do several more of these studies soon.

Thank you so much for the favourites, btw.

Love how the eyes are so bold in comparison to the softness of the rest of her. : )

nice texture on the skin! I don't know if you are looking for critique or not, but all I would say is that skin has more colors in it than just the tan/red peach colors. like shadows and stuff will have blues and greens and the places that are thin will have yellows and purples.
Also I think that your main problem here is that the eyes look almost fake because they are such solid saturated colors in comparison to the softness of the skin. I guess just look at the way all the colors reflect the other ones?

I'm sort of trying out digital painting myself and this is really fantastic! I especially like how smoothly the skin is blended.

Thanks for the critique! I'm always looking for some lol...

I get what you mean... I'm trying to figure out what colours would work best where, mostly through experimentation... I probably should have used more reference for this lol.

I used a set of Photoshop brushes on this one but I can't find them now lol...

She reminds me of Cate Blanchett. The expression is powerful, full of longing.

I love the subtle changes in skin tone you have here! Very feathery and elegant.

The noise looks like you smudged it by mistake.

You think so?

I've gotten a lot of complaints from people for this one lol... I'm just going to have to keep trying...

It's not that big a smudge, and the only way you'll notice is if your looking for it. It's a really good image.
