I just wanted to post my latest portrait piece. Lately I felt like I needed to make some big changes in the way I work as I'm taking my first steps to approaching employers with my portfolio, so I wanted to finally get involved with the community and gain some real insight into how I can become better.
I've been working on this for a couple of hours now. I started the piece with the intention to work on my problem areas: Colour, values, emotion and noses. It's still a work in progress but any tips on how I could work on it further would be greatly appreciated.
There's a little story behind the image that I know is not apparent from looking at it, but I've been trying also to add a little more meaning to my pieces in hopes that they will have more life.
"She looks up at her would-be destroyer.. The man who just reduced her world, her family, to ruins. She gazes curiously with her new eyes and the chill of eternal life, not with hate but with hope. He saved her."
Thanks a lot,
