    cgaddict: Thank you! Aye, value studies are on my to-do list. Did the queen and princess portraits in grayscale first, but colouring them was a paaain :s

    FourTonMantis: Cheers! Can't wait for some spare time, I craaaave Sargent studies x.x

    Finished my final remake of my generation portraits tonight. Again, posting the old version too for shits and giggles. And I damn well hope I get good enough to start freelancing soon, need to save cash for a truckload of botox if I'm gonna look like that when I'm old...

    Looking good! Really enjoy the lighting and color scheme here, very dynamic. The contrast on the skin is a bit high - try maybe starting out with a darker mid-tone and build the highlights slowly to define the form. With that said, you're definitely improving in terms of your painting technique, this is definitely one your strongest pieces and is very well done. Keep them coming!

    I am most fascinated by your treatment of the ear here...

    It's curious, because instead of resembling an older person's wrinkles, to me she (future you) looks more like she is made out of wood. The ear has qualities of a knothole, and we are reminded of springs-gone-by by the green leaf jewelry. I didn't read your intentions on the previous page, because I am stubbornly lazy atm, so perhaps this was all according to your master plans?

    I do wish that there was some shadowing under her jaw that would temper the left-most neck wattle... Speaking of which, it seems that the leaf would be casting some shadow, too (just where it is touching her cheek, and then on her neck).

    Curious clothes fashion you foresee for yourself, or is that some sort of rejuvenation chamber?

    Of course, you've declared her done, so... no pressure.

    That youthful version is dazzlingly, robotically, pretty. You should include a snapshot of yourself for us.

    cgaddict: Thank you Good advice there, I'm usually really inpatient/stressed and rush things, I guess I should really slow down a bit.

    William b. Hand: Hah, you're right! She does look wooden. Like this lady she's a future ancestor, and obviously we're all environmentally screwed in the future which makes resources and general greenery rare (= golden leaf earring symbolising environmentalism and wealth). As for the clothing, there's no thought behind it at all apart from the rough stitches that show her general disdain of modern vanities and fashions. I bet it's organic wool. So the wooden look, although unintentional, actually fits. Thanks for the great feedback, I'll noodle around with it some more tomorrow, and thanks for stopping by!

    Here's another remake from tonight; Tristran and Victoria from Stardust by the amazing mr Gaiman. Keeping the original versions to myself, because they are truly atrocious and would probably ruin the book for people... Her eyes are wonky and her ears should show, but the portraits will only be slightly larger than big stamps when printed so I'm just going to leave them a bit messy. Oh, and I'll put some kind of frame around them later.

    And him again, a Gogh paraphrase gone horribly wrong (Chewbacca on acid, anyone?) but my man is kinda quirky and colourful and I did it very impulsively and quick in one short sitting, so in this case I don't mind the outcome one bit. I actually like that it's messy and far from perfect and not at all what I had in mind, if that makes sense... (but next time I'll make sure to do a proper study first, I promise)
