Simple Portrait

Alright, the announced “new” stuff will have to wait until I have some non art related things sorted out that are going wrong at the moment; I just can’t focus like that … so, for now, I’ll just do some relaxing comfort zone stuff, like random portraits. I’ve added an alternative version as well, hope you like it!

This time, I first sketched a simple portrait after Michael Hampton’s facial feature rules, then shot some reference to get the light right. I’ve also learned what different kinds of light patterns can be used by photographs (and painters), and that one is called “Rembrandt lighting” :) You can find out more about it here: link
