if you want smooth transitions then work on blending your midtones at the transition. Some areas like the bridge of the nose and cheekbones are rarely ever soft transitions though.
Thanks for the tips. Yeah the nose came out about right. I just couldn't get the cheeks or chin as smooth as I wanted.if you want smooth transitions then work on blending your midtones at the transition. Some areas like the bridge of the nose and cheekbones are rarely ever soft transitions though.
Don't be afraid to go higher contrast and use less paint to imply structure. That can help with transitions as well.
I've been too busy with music to get serious with it, I got it for album qraphics and art for music videos but haven't had any time to do anything yet worth sharing.Nice! Any examples?
Also fun fact: a coworker and friend of mine used to be a dev for Corel Painter back in the 00s.
I mean this as a compliment, I swear. I'm sure you're familiar with the uncanny valley, right? This is right on the edge of that climb up right where its almost "perfectly human" and your eye won't distinguish it, where most portraits seem to fall on the early part of the "V" if that makes sense.
While sure, improve your technique for your own sake whatever you want to work on, work on, but if you ask me? I really like the style here, and I actually enjoy the "cel shaded"(I realize this isn't that, but it's pretty close to the idea if you ask me) look over a "photorealistic" look here, great work!
