Okay.... so the early morning walk never happened!! Hahaha
This is a portrait I’m working; it’s of Michael Jackson, as if you need me to tell you that...I’m still working on it right now, but if I wait until I’m finished to show you, it won’t get shown for a very very long time... and I wanted to show work in progress pictures.
I know it looks messy and kind of crappy... but it will pull together in the end lol.
The first picture is the sketch, which is always a mess when I do it.
Then I lay down the base skin colour, I always put this on roughly, and tidy it up as I go along.
Next is the eyes, I start with the white of the eye, and then do the iris, pupil etc. I always start with the eyes first, because they need to be right before you move onto the skin, hair, clothes etc. If the eyes are not positioned right, and coloured correctly, it is going to look wrong, I spend a lot of time trying to get the right emotion into the eyes.
Then I begin working on the nose. The eyes are not finished yet... I WILL keep going back to them, but the important bits are done with...
I’ll show more of this as I go along *smiles* I'll keep working on this right now. I am in agony at the moment so, keep still helps and at least by painting, I can keep my mind occupied and focused on something other than pain. ermm.... thanks for reading.
