Another portrait that would fit the category 'nice try'.
All these paintings are from the beginning of the year. Around January- February.
There actually existed a partly rendered version of this one but in the middle of drawing i got so frustrated i deleted it. The structure of the lips is so bad it made her look like an Orang-Utan every time i tried to render them.
After the failure above i concentrated on learning to understand the underlying structure of the face so i wouldn't have to rely on luck while placing the facial features. The result of my efforts was this drawing.
Even though the reference was CLEARY a woman i was quite happy with the outcome. It seems like i drew a handsome man instead of a woman.
It was definitly time to study how to make a face more feminine.
