My Second Portrait Ever!

Okay, so I'm here with a new page. I'm trying to catch up with an online course that I'm playing around with; yesterday's prompt was to make a page that represents who you are at this moment in time. This isn't really who I am; but it's who I'd like to be. You see, I'd love to have black hair; even though my hair is already a really dark brown, I just think it'd be cool. Then the blue highlights are something that I'm considering getting. I don't know yet though. I kind of like the way my hair is now... kind of tomboyish. If I get an electric blue streak or something, I don't know if I would like it. I dunno.

Well, anyways, I really like the way that this page turned out. It's only my second portrait ever, and even though the first one turned out better, I really like this one. A lot. I love the blue color that the shirt is too. Basically I just started by sketching out a face, and then I painted it. To get the color of the skin, I lightly shaded in the face with an orange pastel, then mixed it in with white acrylic paint. There were only a few layers in the actual background, which I actually completed after the portrait was finished. I normally do a lot more layers than this, but it seemed finished quicker than normal. And that's what matters. :) I'll see you guys later!! Bye!


  1. that's the fun thing about hair, it can be changed to any way you like it. but......damage it and you will have a long time waiting for it to repair itself. have fun....the portrait looks a lot like you already....very good job!!!

  2. Gorgeous page! Can't believe it's only your second portrait!
