A simple portrait painting using mainly the oil brush but really pushing the tonal contrast, I was quite happy how this turned out and is really the style I want to try and achieve for my portraits.
Using ArtRage on a Surface Pro to create some digital art!
Started this painting with a little tracing and wanted to primarily use the airbrush to see if I could figure out a better way to apply gradations to the skin, in the end it doesn’t quite look like my style as the edges and texture are not really there, but with all these experiments I ended up learning a lot.
Done on an ipad using an app called iPastel to get myself familiar with using digital art. I used a simple form of stylus, a non pressure sensitive type, so the accuracy wasn’t too great, but I was using my fingers and pastels on natural media anyway.
