Nice 'warm up' pic. I only noticed the birds on the second look... nice touch.

These character portraits were done for a board game - they will be on little playing cards, so the final output size will be tiny! There were 40 portraits in total, here are my favorite 12 -

Wow those are simply awesome! I love the jester guy with the red hat, that one stood out to me above all the rest. Not sure why.

Thanks for commenting! My boyfriend likes that one ("The Idiot") too. I have to work on my werewolves, it looks like a giant overgrown rat. Like master Splinter's dodgy uncle or something.

Well now you point it out, it does look like rather a distant relative of Master Splinter.

Loving your stuff.

Although you're good in all areas, I can't help but detect a hint of rushed-ness in terms of the board game cards anatomy wise. Same sortof "look" comes through in the life drawings. I can't really talk since I'm not exactly better - but it seems to me that your strongest area is your colour and shading :)

Thanks for your observations Vijil! Learning by yourself is tough, so I really appreciate it when someone takes the time to look at and crit my stuff :) These portraits were extremely rushed, as I had to churn out 40 of them in 1 week. My level of anatomy is extremely rudimentary at this stage, and when I rush it really shows! I suppose the only thing to do is to keep plugging away at the Loomis/Bridgeman books and stick to my lifedrawing classes religiously.

Somehow the second version looks better to me. The lace, by being less defined, appears more realistic.

Not that i know anything about this drawing lark. The first image which is the draft i think. I like the hair shape better and the overall face shape, lips and eyes.

Great stuff.
If only i could draw and draw and draw!!!!

Thanks for the fresh eyes guys!

vijil>> I tried knocking back the detail in the lace (below) I guess its all about suggesting detail rather than painting everything super-tight :)

Filtered>>Thanks for the comment! I think that a lot of the spontaneity of the original sketch is lost in the final - I will see what I can do

Hi Visionsprings

The tough features on the jaw and cheekbone + soulful eyes = awesome warrior woman face.

However the perspective is a bit off. We seem to be looking at the head from a low angle, so the eyes would sit on an upward arc rather than on a horizontal level. Same for the brow and hairline.

Cheers
