    After 5 days of non stop painting... I couldn't bring myself to finish the painting today. I had to do something else than that.
    So, here's an update:

    Portrait of my cousin Mungledi:

    Her left eye and cheak looked a bit strange.
    Because of her eye, her teeth seemed to be too small, but now I've moved her eye, her teeth don't seem that small anymore

    I think her face is ok now... only have to do her hair/shirt/background

    Thanks to you all
    I know I really must draw a lot more... But I can't find the time for it right now (even in my summer holidays i'm extremely busy)

    I finished the portrait of my cousin yesterday:

    Hi!

    I've scanned some old drawings yesterday to put on my website.
    All made last year:

    Ooooh love love love the portrait! Very nice!
    I really like how you painted it, the mouth especially turned out great. But the rest as well..

    One tiny nitpick: the picture you painted it from was overexposed. This means you're copying the flaws of photogrography onto your painting. It looks really nice on the light parts, but the skin looks a bit weird brownish (which I guess is her actual skincolour?) on the right side because of the overexposion these two don't really look right, but they probably don't already in the original photo. So I guess this has nothing to do with your technque, more with choosing reference pictures (although I do think she looks really nice and spontaneous on the painting, so this might have been the best picture).

    Well great stuff
    I'll keep coming by here every now and then.
    Gotta update my sketchbook now

    Love
    Marleen

    P.S. Have to tell you once more how much I love the ballerina in "pittkrijt". It gives such a nice effect on the tutu!

    @ clanlord: yeah I get what you mean. At first, I didn't want to draw the mouth because it looked already kinda weird on the photo... but it's even weirder to not draw it if you've already drawn the eyes and nose. So I kinda screwed it up and I don't dare to draw any further (I've had some trouble with translating this, so I'm sorry if it's weird...)
    @Marleen: Thank you! You're too kind
    And about the portrait: I guess it wasn't that smart of me to use that photo for the portrait. But my uncle wanted me to paint that one, because it was the only one where she laughed spontaneously
    And about the brownish dark right side of her face: I think I rather like that part I don't know why, it just feels good or sometin...

    A very small contribution this time... I feel ashamed of myself, really.
    I've drawn more during the holiday's, but I'm afraid that the scanner will explode when I try to scan those horrible sketches -_-'
    Maybe I'll try it tomorrow..

    Pffeww... it took me half an hour to translate this. I will never post anything at this hour no more (even had struggles with this.. -_-')

    Oooh lovely!!
    Maybe the head is a bit too small, but after measuring I'm not so sure anymore. It looks good proportion wise anyways..
    Don't feel ashamed of your sketches, I guess it's good to have weak points and to be able to get better at them so you can actually feel better again because you improved?

    Keep it up girl
    I feel ashamed , didn't really draw much this vacation.. Just worked and worked some more.
    Love
    Marleen

    Nice sketches and work here. Last one looks good but has some anatomy issues on the arm - stil a great piece tho - then for your painting in general try do some underpainting 1st instead of working stuff up into detail, piece by piece. Will make for more depth plus help tie in the pieces of your painting. Your current work method is more suited for pencil work to prevent smudging and such.
    Try build your painting in layes instead of pieces.
