Been trying to get better at faces so I've done a lot of portraits lately. Worked on this on and off for a while now so I'm gonna call it done. The apperance is based on the
Bijin Warmaidensmod by rxkx22 (check it out if you haven't!).
This picture has truly inspired the way I want to do portraits. I really love the fact that everything but the face is sketchy, which brings so much attention to that area. The pores are added masterfully and they're barely noticeable, yet they add a whole new level to the painting. I also think the colors you've gone with are great, it's easy to forget colors when drawing skin (I know for a fact I do that) but here they're clear and vivid. I also really love the eyes. I have a hard time to draw interesting eyes without adding a fantastical element to it, but you've managed to keep them realistic.
I love your painting! I do not know who she is, but her look is very sympathetic and realistic. Great work !!!
