Hello everyone, it's that time again
This month I planned to cover painting Portraits
, but after researching resources I realised that there is just too much content so I'm going to split this topic up into two journals. I'll start off with over all steps for painting a portrait and detailing the eyes, and next month will cover the nose and mouth as well as include some of my favourite portrait pieces
It means this journal will be shorter than usual but I hope you still find it useful!
So to continue from my anatomy journal last month, these are tutorials on how to structure the face
And now on to portrait painting!
This is definitely one of my favourites by nom-nom-pancake
and here is a great series by lithriel
Other portrait tutorials;
Step by Step portraits without instruction;
Video process: florence0.deviantart.com/favou…
(I never get tired of watching this, it's fantastic)
Now that we have the base done, I wanted to move on to detailing the eyes
. The amount of tutorials out there for this topic is crazy so I've tried to cut down a bit!
If you don't want to go through all of those, this particular series is very good:
Videos for painting the eye: randis.deviantart.com/art/How-… iris-malerian.deviantart.com/a… nitelyhallow.deviantart.com/ar…
(I always find it easiest to learn from watching a video so I highly recommend these)
And finally for inspiration, these are some of my favourite paintings of eyes. It was surprisingly hard to find any amazing eye drawings, so if you know of any that you think are excellent let me know and I'll include them
As always, I hope this was useful and I'll see you next month
