Cersei Lannister process (help needed)
I am very new to portrait painting. I cannot for the life of me figure out whats wrong with her face. Of course it is not an actual representation and that is what I intended, but doesn't something feel off about her left eye in the final piece?
I know this is really stylized, but here are some remarks.
- When doing portrait focus should usually be on persons eyes. the shoulder pads are distracting.
- Put details where you want viewer to look at
- i dont udnerstand the blue light on neck, it does not accomplish anything. ¨
- Dont draw out every hair, try to find masses in there. For example watch Prokos tutorial on hair.
I also tried to do quick overdraw, tried to pop out the face more, so I dakened the background and some features on the face. I dont know if its the direction you want to go, its just a suggestion.
