I decided to take a recent portrait I had done, (see further down the page) and really try and get more out of it. Pushing myself to use way more colour to describe skin tones, and stronger contrasts. I wanted to give this one a more painterly style that was consistent throughout the image. Any feedback on this work would be greatly appreciated, good or bad!
Done in Photoshop CS5, with a tablet, and a fabric texture dropped in from CGTextures.com
