adventures in everything...

I’m still here…

02 Jul 11

honestly! Just been a busy bee recently!
Still lot’s of things on the go at the moment, and in the next few weeks I have 2 weddings to go to so will post all the stuff I’d been working on for those soon (invites and a cake topper!)

Right now I’m working on another digital painting. It’s been a while since I did this one and this one, so I thought it was about time to give it another go.

The drawing itself isn’t great, it doesn’t look exactly like the photo I used, but it’s still good to practice the techniques. So to keep you entertained until I have something more interesting to post here’s some progress shots…

Sketching out the image and then adding block colour on a separate layer…

Defining the contours and other coloured areas like the lips and hair with rough colour…

Breaking down the shades on the nose…

And blending those colours…

There’s still loads to do and who knows when I’ll get round to finishing it, but I’m enjoying giving it another go!
