So yeah, my first try with a photorealistic potrait, because before I've
never really aimed for photorealism, since I don't find it creative.
But, it was done for practice purposes and I'm very proud of the effect,
that's why I'm submitting it here. No tracing, no color picking, just painting from what I see. The reference picture is here: [link] .
This is Alexz Johnson, a Canadian singer & actress with such a
beautiful face, that once I saw it, I knew I'd paint her. I'm not even a
fan, although she has a very pretty voice, too. I showed her this
portrait of course, and she liked it! :D
Critiques & tips are very welcome! I know I messed up the hand,
and the hair isn't right - but I'd die if I was to recreate it
The most hard part: catching the propotions.
The most boring part: the hair. @_@
The most easy part: guessing the colors (that was a surprise)
The most fun part: the pores!
