Practice painting portraits again, this time I used the lovely
's stock to help with the pose reference and an idea for the make up. The colours were a little light so I ended up painting in darker tones of pinks, blues, yellows, oranges, etc to make the face stand out a bit better.
Her eyes are referenced from a friends eyes. She has tri coloured eyes like a friend of mine, with orange around the pupil. Hair ideas came from braids I've had personally in the past. In honor of the lovely individual who posts up some of the most amazing stock I've seen, I've named her Maria.
Pretty happy with it, Happy I took a dive into making those skin tones pop more. I did a similarly blonde hair girl in a similar pose around this time last year, and thought it was time to experiment and try it again. I definitely love it more then last years lol.
