View Full Version : Tess, a portrait

I saw a thread about smudging photos and I didn't yet read all of it but give me the idea to exercise on a photo for a quick portrait,
I did this morning a portrait of a young woman,
I have no idea if it takes me less or more time than to the this portrait without any reference but I know that is different from what I would do with a free hand painting and no reference at all.

The result looks more like a colorized photo but is only one of the few variants that I did and I wanted to keep his face clear and precise but I lost in the way the strokes and almost all I hand painted.

I show to you the reference and the portrait that I did.
I would like to have your opinion .:)

the reference is a small photo and I did a crop for you to see the face and the colors.
