rafal's sketchbook again

on: September 10, 2015, 09:48:30 am
Hi, it looks like my previous thread is not here anymore, so I'm starting a new one. After a year or something I decided to give that portait another try, so maybe I'll finish it this time.

Considering that was a year ago, why not redraw it? There are many proportional discrepancies in the old one. Focus on proportion before shading.

Well, a year ago it looked like that, I've just found that and started drawing.

I don't really care if it's extremely accurate to the ref photo, I use it mostly to deal with shading and basic proportions of human head. These of course may suck as it's my first pixel portrait  :P

I like the portrait but I see two things that could be fixed to make it look a bit better. First real issue is the shading/lighting on the nose. It looks like she has one nostril, and the lighting suggests that her nose is facing forward, when you can tell by the rest of the portrait that she has her head turned very slightly to the right. The other thing I see is that the sides of her lower lip could come in a little further to the middle. Its still pretty nice overall!

2015  :o

i must have been working on it since then, because it looks much better than the versions posted here
right now I'm really rusty because I haven't been doing any kind of pixels in a long time (my usual kind of pixelart if you're interested - 1 2 3).

Right now I'm steering away from being accurate to the photo (the first post here) to spontaneous corrections "what feels right".
