My self portrait. Originally I was going to do this traditionally using acrylic paint. But I decided it would be better to do it digitally due to time restraints. I used a custom color palette but used a photo to get measurements and proportions from. My work time on this piece was around 30 hours.
This is a commission portrait I worked on. I used white chalk on black paper and black colored pencil for the darker black in the hair. I finished this in about 15 hours.
This is my "Queen of the Bulls" portrait. My favorite due to how well the style and the black and white shades work together.
This was the first digital portrait I worked on. This started as a study for my Figure Painting class and ended more rendered than I initially wanted. I put in about 6 hours to make this.
This is the second digital portrait I worked on. I wanted to focus on how light changes color rather than copying a portrait. It took in between 8 hours to finish this study.
For this portrait I wanted to focus on making colors, so I stayed away from color sampling. I was surprised to see what I came up with. This portrait took me 16-17 hours to do.
