Work in progress, thoughts and such

London based Art Student. This is for people that may be interested in seeing my work develop. I may post ideas, quick sketches or inspiration. I've got a Portfolio type Tumblr for finished pieces and old work and such.

Awh, thanks for being nice about my latest piece. Although I’d appreciate some constructive criticism. 

I’ve messed up the face a bit. If I block off the right side (light hair side) jawline and chin it looks alright so I think its partially that and partially the mouth?

About 12 hours in. I’ve never done a piece like this. The background is going to be a challenge. Having fun so far though.

Both finished and hung for my final exhibition/assessment. The quality of finish is rather different, I know. But considering the difference in time spent on each I don’t think it’s too drastic.

Almost almost finished. Just the individual hairs to go and they’re one of my favourite parts. I have to wait for the rest of the hair to dry before that though. 4 days work, pretty alright for that.

One eye essentially DONE.

The eyes are really getting to me. These time constraints! I’m rushing because I really think I might be able to finish. I’m going to spend tomorrow fixing the eyes (they’re not attempting to pass as finished here!) and the lips. Then I’ll have to wait until a lot of it is dry before I can put the scraggly little highlight hairs on. Ok.

Eye base colour. It’ll look better with the highlights obviously but there’s going to be something off still, I can tell.

It’s going to get complicated tomorrow because I’ll be working against wet edges.
I have been a little bit today but I wanted them to look blurred anyway, so it was fine. Eyes and lipstick tomorrow! Oh my goodness, I might finish! Might I?!

Almost a day in. Few more hours to go. The nose is wonky (it looks as if it is straight on when it needs to look slanted). Quite pleased with the progress. I’m having to be strategic wit there I work seeing as it will all be wet.
