In preparation for our final projects, my ANI14 professor had the class paint each other's portraits. I find painting portraits fun and relaxing. It's much easier to work with shapes rather than line when it comes to figures. Of course, I still need a lot of practice to improve.
This is the first 20 minute portrait. My classmate was lit with a cool light covered with a blue gel slide. The shapes are coming together but I definitely need to improve on color and fix the values a bit.
