29 Faces #4

This face has been something I've worked on sporadically, I'd come back to it and try to fine tune some area or other, but tonight I worked on it til I decided it was done.  I'm guessing some of you will be able to relate to this - I've spent hours staring directly at her, and not til I was looking at a scanned copy on the computer that I realized that her eyes are just off - looking in different directions, one a little bigger than the other, one open more - it made me laugh.  And it's okay, perfection is boring, and I'm going to paint her anyway, so I'll have a chance to make changes then.



  1. I really like her, you shaded perfectly her hair, I would not have noticed the eyes till you said it, I to dont notice things till I walk away and come back with fresh eyes

  2. It happens to me too, sometimes it looks fine, since our faces are not quite even.... but some other times, I can't stand it! lol
    I go to the mirror, or I turn the scan image in the photo editor... then decide if I change it or leave it.
    This lady is pretty and the shading is wonderful

  3. eyes are so hard!! i love your use of pencil though. very dramatic.

  4. I think it's the scanner - my art looks wonderful until it's scanned and posted on my blog and then, ugh, I can see all the imperfections!


  5. I know exactly what you mean!!! Still love her.... great shading.
