This picture is for a customer based off of a REALLY crappy photo. I mean flip phone quality! I definitely need to update my requirements for images.
All in all, I’m okay with how it came out. The person it was presented to was ecstatic I’m told.
At the end of the day, that matters quite a bit.
Also, this was the first image I’ve created on my new artdesk! It feels official now.
In the interest of full disclosure, I also had to put a white light LED bulb in the lamp I bought. I didn’t realize how off I was seeing colors until I corrected them. See the yellow? Ew…
Second layer is prismacolor pencils in case you’re wondering. I get amazing depth in my images this way. It makes a HUGE difference in the overall look.
Also, no more expensive artist tape, especially since I get better edges with painters tape, hahaha.
Some of the time was spent just getting her face right. Again, using a small image and trying to get it photo accurate was an enormous challenge. Apparently, it looks like her; the relief I felt made all the little struggles worth it.
So after a few more touch ups, I’ll spray it with fixer and it’ll be on its way.
