So here's my latest....and definitely not my greatest. But I decided to mess around a bit and take an old pencil portrait that I drew (before I really started working on improving my drawing skills. When I took a pic of the portrait it came out looking really yellow and the lines (looking back now) were way too harsh. So I went to work and messed around with painting and colorizing it. I did change some things and I'm sure my friend DJ won't mind a bit. They're divorced now, lol. I never liked Ginny's natural hairline (it looked like helmet head if you ask me, lol) So I added bangs. Now mind you , this pic looks very pixelated because it naturally is. It's not like I was working with a real photo. And it was tough at times working within the pixels not to overdo it, and blending was well, let's just say "good training" lol. But I did end up liking her hair after I got done. DJ was tougher.....those darn redheads always are , right? LOL Blending his hair and trying to keep it short and cropped without looking too pixelated was tough. And when adding color, especially to his lips I had to make sure he didn't look like he was wearing lipstick. Anyway, I know it's not my greatest but it was a learning exercise. I also played around a lot more with the layering. I'm including a before photo (the original drawing) as well so you can see what I was talking about.
