I recently started taking an intrest in painting. Seascapes mostly but I was curious to have a go at portrait painting. I really struggle painting faces but I wanted to try anyhow so ive decided to start by using my Character portrait as a Model to work from. Ive started with water colours and I plan to experiment with Oils as well. My hope is eventually ill be able to do a good rendition of my character portrait in oils !
My first effort (in water colour)
I will update my post when i finally make my oil painting and some future renditions of the watercolour.
Im really not happy with the eyes yet but as im so new i guess ill give myself a break.
Have any of you guys ever painted your Avatar ? Perhaps some of you with some actual skill could have a go and show the work here.
Anyhow thats all, flysafe.
