This was my first approach on digitally painting painting portraits. First, I drew the line art in a piece of paper using Staedtler Rapidographs. Secondly I digitally re drew my original sketch in Adobe Photoshop trying to keep the lines simple and not over drawing facial features or expressions.
I focused a lot on giving as much richness to the skin as I could. I tried not to over decore the painting and I also tried to keep it as simple as possible.
