Portrait of Juliette

Portrait is almost done, and I'm pretty happy with it.
This is just a screen cap of it from yesterday, and it should be finished today. Do you want to see it or not.

Nice work Greg Now I could be totally off track here, but is the Juliette in question, Binoche(?)?

Nice painterly feel, that I know you strive for in your work, overall a pleasing portrait (sorry if I sound trite)

Thank You all. Of couse it's Binoche, I'm not that bad that I make people, where I have to go, hey, it's uncle Bud, can't you tell?
This format bugs me, as I can't read what you wrote while writing the reply.
I did a few stage images on this to show in another group, so it may be possible to do a tut, excepth for one thing. I DONT DO TUTS. I'm not good at putting book pages together, which is what a tut is, and I can't usually remember all the steps, because I don't have to think too much about it as I do it. All I know is, it's getting easier. My first one, which is in my gallery, I think, had to covered with a machine effect, cause it looked so bad.

Thumbs down

Greg... This is awesome.

Forgive my ignorance, but as a general technique, do you use a photo for reference and then more-or-less freehand it via tablet into your application (PSP, right?), and then fine tune from there?

Back to the image: Stunning.

Yes for reference, but I pull the colors directly from the photo, unless it's a b&W, then I make them. I like to have a nice large image with lots of detail. This is the only way to get what I want as I'm never gonna meet the people I want to paint. I've never been so happy to work. I have more projects lined up(in my head) that I'll never finish, but that's a good thing. I don't know if I can make a tut or not. I don't even know if it's a worthwhile thing.

OK it's done, no it's not, it's done, no

it's not. Those that paint know the feeling, it starts deep in your gut, floats up to your brain, and sits there bubbling, I can't finish this painting, I don't know how. Will they like it? on and on and on

here it is

Thanks Flora, I had to fix a couple a things on this one. It's done, but not complete. I'm not going to post the repaired one, as it seems redundant.
Ciao
