My latest kick is faces…I am just astounded at the different versions that emerge. Still trying to learn shading, but I’m not stressing about it too much. No matter how hard I try, the eyes are always big to huge, so I’m just gonna let my hand draw them as they want. 🙂
This face is part what I’ve been thinking about lately (my native american heritage) and part what I saw on another site. The background was made last week…Neocolor crayons spritzed with Dylusions lemon zest to make the colors run. I drew this girl right on top of the background, so much of the greens and yellows are incorporated into her face. Her dress is part of the background. I used mostly acrylic paint and then used Neocolors to fine tune and do the facial features.
I made her eyes blue/green because I am fascinated with the Native Americans in the area that I live (Lumberton, N.C.), the Lumbee Indians. Some of them have the most remarkable blue eyes I have ever seen!
Here is a face that I drew really fast using Neocolor crayons. I just didn’t think about it at all; I just grabbed the crayons and let my hand draw. I was in a bad mood, and I think it is interesting that this face reflects that!
