I was out of town for work so I wasn’t able to draw portraits for two days. I started up again, and I feel rusty, I constantly had perspective issues and had to fix placement of the features a few times, had to repaint the eyes twice. I was so behind I didn’t even get to finish the ear or add hair. I need to find more refs of woman that I can use for my projects. I’ve used a 3d model for reference for this painting (I used her as a ref for portrait 6 as well) . I rather draw from life but can’t afford a model. I can’t just use Google Images because that would infringe on copyrights and I just don’t trust Morguefile.com. So if you know a good, cheep stock photo site, let me know. I might start asking friends if I could paint their faces, I guess.
My daily head painting practice. This one I struggled a bit with. Because the the perspective was above the viewer’s eye and I not used to drawing a head at such a angle. But I made it though. I went a half hour over and still didn’t have time for the hair or blending the face so this picture is still quite raw. I thought the teeth and open mouth would be difficult but it was actually much easier then I anticipated.
