I repainted the face and expression. The upper eye lids needed to be created. I drew from a model, but her upper eye’s were heavy. When I was painting the eyes I knew the angle just wasn’t correct. Here, the lashes are not in and detail shading. I do like the anatomy now.
An Artist does not copy another artist’s artwork. It is an unspoken law and respect between follow artist. You are doing yourself a disservice in speaking as far as your own artistically growth.
If you are going to “Look” at other artwork for inspiration is one thing; taking the concept of another artist’s artwork but then making it your own depends on how you approach your artwork. Don’t be afraid to work and rely on your own abilities as an artist. In the end you will grow in skill as well as character.
PLEASE FEEL FREE TO CONTACT ME WITH ANY QUESTIONS YOU MAY HAVE. I WORK WITH EVERYONE’S SCHEDULE, BEING A BUSY MOM OF THREE I UNDERSTAND COMPLETELY HOW TIME IS NOT ALWAYS OUR OWN. THE MOST IMPORTANT THING YOU CAN DO FOR YOURSELF IS TAKE AN ART LESSON OR TWO IF ART IS WHAT YOU USE TO DO OR WANT TO RESTART. IT’S NEVER TOO LATE TO DO SOMETHING FOR YOURSELF.
