I just want to pet her hair - it looks so soft. And deep, shining eyes again. Your portraits are always stunning.

Thanks! Wouldn't be one of mine without the eyes, right? Haha.

=w=;; Greyscale portraits amaze me so much, and this one is no different. x3 I love her freckles, heh.

Thanks! I enjoy doing the occasional black and white painting. Color's a pain.

I loved the freckles on the original drawing so I was sure to add them.

O.o Really? Huh. For some reason, I always think of it the other way around. :P

8D Freckles pride! ......Most of the time! (xD; I have a weird relationship with my freckles, don't ask)

Thank you! Meikoe's portraits have a really interesting style to them that I tried to incorporate into this version.

I know I've said this before, but thank you so much! I absolutely love it! :tighthug:

The hair, as it always does in your sketchs, looks amazing! I love how you've interpreted her features, it gives her face a much more unique look than I'd previously imagined and looks much more realistic. I keep going back to the nose and eyebrows, they look particually real. Her freckles look so cool, and her eyes....wow. There's just something about them that stands out...
Thank you so much!
(Just of of curiousity, how many layers do you generally work with? And how long does a digital sketch like this usually take?)

You're very welcome! It was a pleasure. I'm glad you're happy with my interpretation of her.

The number of layers I work with varies a lot depending on the painting and the level of detail. For something like this, I'd use just a few. For a more complex painting where I do a lot of textures and rendering effects, I would use more. But for the most part, I like to keep things simple and flatten whenever I can.

A semi-realistic black and white sketch usually takes me under an hour but can vary.
