Today I made sure to get plenty of reference photos during my commute to work and back so that I'd be ready to paint when I got home. I want to eventually paint from imagination so I picked an overexposed reference photo to practice filling in the blanks a little. Something I noticed is that I have a tendency to make faces a little too long at first.

JamishT was a heck of a guy,
With a devilish twinkle in his eye.
With his hand-picked flowers,
And his feel-good powers,
He made all the girls blush and sigh.

I really like these brushes. Also, I'm finding Disney facial proportions much harder to paint than realistic ones, even though that's pretty much the first thing I studied when I started learning how to draw. I needed to outline a little sketch for the face before painting it in because painting it straight was a disaster.

I think I accidentally made Taylor look a bit like Idina Menzel.

The missing apostrophe bothers me a bit but that is the title. Spent more time on this than usual because it's the weekend and I messed up a bunch. I seem to alternate between liking and hating my paintings.

My natural state is an RBF but I full-on squealed when I saw this. Ahhh I remember first hearing the news about that performance. Iconic.

My cousin, sister, and I had an art day today. On my way home, there was this really soft and pretty pink sunset. It was very simple, but it looked so nice. It made me really happy seeing it. I based this painting on that. Experimental, probably overdid the textures, but I had fun making it.

Reference. My dad actually thought it was a serious attempt and tried to offer me advice. I mean, it kind of was given my reference, but not in the way he thought.

I love it when I successfully draw the other eye. Also, I am currently on a trip so I will be posting again when I get back.

Thought I'd try painting from imagination during my commute. I wanted to test out my new iPad but found out halfway through my stylus didn't work properly but I kept going anyway. I wish I were immune to motion sickness.

Day 18 - Marjorie

This started out from a reference photo of Gal Gadot but while mapping the head I started seeing a different person so I went with whatever I thought that person was. She seems like a Marjorie.

My new stylus arrived and it still doesn't work so I'm starting to think I'm being stupid and/or there's something wrong with my iPad. I'm tired.

I was supposed to paint yesterday but I wrote a journal entry to unload my emotional baggage on random internet strangers instead.

This one's a rough sketch I did on my way to work (got a new iPad, turns out my old one was a version that didn't work with styluses so I replaced it). I was supposed to finish it today but I'm dehydrated and dying. However, I have been recording a timelapse for this one so I'll be darned if I don't continue it tomorrow. Magical green thumbs for anyone who guesses the person in the portrait and for pretty much anyone posting in this thread because I love you guys

Oo I can see why, but unfortunately I have no idea who that is. However, that necklace is lit and I love her hair.

My guess was Danielle Panabaker as Caitlin Snow in The Flash which I watched like 2 seasons of...but then I got tired of "the fastest man in the universe" being slower than his opponents and the awful writing. :P

BUT I LOOOOOVE APRIL LUDGATE-DWYER!

Do you know who I combined her with in this picture?
