Celebrity portrait

28 August, 2007

Here is my celebrity portrait of Kelis. Lately I ve been really into quick sketching and painting fast digitally, I am really enjoying the feel of this and I am able to understand more about the colors and the shapes.EnJoY.

Nice colors. My only quick critique is Id fix that shadow. How long do you spend on these quick d.p.'s?

I spent about 40-50 minutes. I started with a gestural sketch to get the main pose and then I just use the oil paint brushes and I add the shapes I see. when I am to a point I like I added some more detail with the pencil like brush. the shadow on the right is the wrong shape I should have fixed it. Thank u guys for the comments
