Sudden drop in specular in the middle of the lower lip distorts the form a little bit

Otherwise it's amazing!

i'm always enamoured by your fantastic use of colour...
may i ask a question?
do you use any blues for the shadows? that always seems to be my problem in painting -- i mute out a lot of the colours with either whites or blues... D:

:iconvampirehungerstrike:
VampireHungerStrike Featured By Owner Mar 14, 2013  Professional Traditional Artist
Thanks. I try to think in terms of warm and cool. If the light source is cool, the shadows will likely be warm. If the light source is warm, the shadows will likely be cool. I typically go for warm shadows with cool light, but lately I've been experimenting with cool shadows. So yes, I do use blues in my cool shadows. Light usually has a color, so mix towards that color instead of using just white for highlights. Your portraits are very nice. I hope this is helpful.

actus-reus Featured By Owner Mar 15, 2013
ah! i never thought to oppose the light source vs the shadow...well now. that kind of gives me a whole new view on how to do portraits!
i mean, i went to art school (granted, my work doesn't show it, its pretty much all just for fun since my focus was on small illustrations) but they never
really went into too much detail in painting class.
...i do remember the teacher always telling me to stop muting my colours...

also, thank you for the compliment and the suggestions! i really appreciate it.

I'm glad I could help! I had a similar experience in school. I had to seek out more information elsewhere. You should see the stuff I did in college. Blech.

Do you use multiple reference pictures, then make up the pose/outfits/scenes yourself? Or do you basically copy pre-existing images in your own style?

I do both, but there's much more of the latter in my gallery.
