Weekly Face

This is Jax. I recently put out a call for people to send me photos of themselves so that I could practise more. Jax very kindly got her hubby to take some photos of her which she emailed. I loved one of her in a hat, so decided to go with that one. 

As always the initial outlines. 


I wasn't confident with producing the texture/fabric of the hat, so I began with that.


and then I moved onto the darkest darks, which were mostly in the hair. 


 I then started on my favourite part, the eyes.


then some of the shading.


here I shaded the ear and added more hair.


more work on the eyes. 


working across the face, left to right to avoid smudging. 


and all done..
