More clearly defined
Worked on this portrait some more last night, and I think I got a lot further along. I just sat and measured and sketch-painted in the face, and edges of the clothes. Started to fix down near the hands, but they definitely need more work. Re-applied some blocking in, added more highlights.
But those eyes are so creepy. The face has turned more serious than I wanted, and the eyes being blank make this look like a ghost portrait to me! She was trying to keep from laughing too hard at the comedy cd we were playing, so I caught her 'serious face,' I suppose. So I need to get to work fixing that.
I'm just thankful it's starting to look more human, and more like her, even if she doesn't think so yet.
