    Female Head Painting step by step

    I had picked some very good head painting tips from Kevin Chen here at NCSoft Santa Monica. As with most artists, I am still in the learning process. Here are my results.

    Nice! Thanks for sharing your process.

    The only crit I can think of is that the eyes are different colors, or was that intentional?

    Very nice. I think the hair needs some work though.

    Hey creativefx,

    Very nicely done, I've enjoyed seeing all the steps.
    I do have a question. Is there a reason for one green eye and the other blue? Did she drop a contact? Is she a character creation?

    I was just wondering. The face is great.

    I agree with Number_^ - hair is lacking care. I think the forehead is also really high.

    Forehead high makes her look young. Intentional?

    I agree... Like, it's great and all, but there seems to be a lack of depth... Which kinda detracts from it's believeablity. Also, as a nitpick, It's not often a woman's nose is shinier than her lips, is it o__O?

    Thanks for all the helpful inputs. I got lazy when I came to the hair and the ears. I do need to work on the mouth area and I see the overall look painting looks rather flat. Things to work on with my next painting. The blue/green eyes were intentional, but her loosing a contact lens also works.
