attempt #2, less ambitious but more successful, turns out painting is easier if i don’t start with lines
it’s a redraw of my first portrait painting all the way back in 2016, included below ^^
there was An Attempt but i still don’t know how to paint faces 🙃
also colors look so different on different screens, i think i keep starting out too dark
going to have to figure out how to shade this...
spent way too long polishing the previous wip that didnt work out so finished some sketches that i like more instead
trying to figure out style, studied a bit of littleulvar & tried drawing one of my characters
