Wow, thanks, Doug! I always wanted to do something from scratch, but was too chicken. This challenge gave me the nudge I needed.

Painter Classic
New document, paper color, a golden brown. I began to sketch using my Wacom tablet, which I have not done before. I usually sketch and scan. I lightly sketched using the 2B pencil in the brushes palette. sketched in the hair, face, facial features, clothes. I then began to paint. I used soft chalk, pen, airbrush, just add water brush. I adjusted equalize several times during the process. Believe me it looked like a mess for a while, I didn't have much hopes for it. I followed this tutorial as a guide only.
minstead.swinternet.co.uk./pastut1.html As you see mine looks nothing like this. When everything was painted I added texture, basic paper. Well, I had fun, I don't know where this little girl came from, my imagination I guess. However, I feel rather close to her now that she's done. Thanks for this site, it's wonderful

Beautiful -- the eyes are riveting (sp?). I like the colors used and the texture, very nice portrait.

Hi Wanda,

This is great. I love the eyes. The mouth is a little too full for me; but, hey what do I know.

Wanda,

Wonderful! Very realistic! I tried to go to the tutorial you mentioned (so I could learn how you did this) but am getting a 'page not found' error. Could you check to see if it is correct?

If the little girl was invented by your imagination, then you have nice things going on upstairs.

Nice work.

Phyllis, thank you, I'm glad you like this little face. I really didn't think it was going to look like anything, but then it started taking shape. Appreciate your kind words. :smile:

Mom3, thank you. I'm sorry about the link, thank goodness, Dear David came to my rescue! I used the tut just as a guide, I took it one step further and turned it into a painting. I hope it helps you, it did me :smile:
