29 Faces art challenge. I originally painted a pretty profile of a lovely girl but it was so dark and the lighting somewhat extreme and I thought it might be interesting to make her a bit scary with dripping blood. I probably watch too much True Blood, I know. I love The Walking Dead too so a gory zombie will probably appear here sometime during the challenge.
I have used references for all of these paintings. I think my painting without one would look a little wonky. I'll give it a whirl for the final portrait.
I'm enjoying doing the digital painting again. I use it for work of course but everything I've done for pleasure these past few years has been traditional media so it's nice to go back and just play around. My favorite part of digital painting is Ctrl +Z. I find myself wishing for that feature in traditional painting. :)
In looking at these portraits over the past week, I've noticed one thing I really need to work on - HAIR! Maybe tomorrow I'll give an elaborate do a whirl and try to to it justice. Painting hair is hard.
