    A series of photostudies aimed at improving my skills in portraiture and painting faces. Friends were chosen as the subjects since I am more familiar with the faces and will spot errors easier. This project also explored my understandings of colour and texture as I explored various brushes, rendering techniques, and applications of colour. This project was created as part of my Computer Arts Practice module for university. The final submissions can be found here: https://www.behance.net/gallery/25711087/Final-Portraits-Submission-CAP-S2 Read Less

Louise, 02.02.15, ~30 minutes
Messy but excellent likeness and tone. Areas to improve: eyes (too high), brush (too flat/muddy)
Karolina, 03.02.15, ~60 minutes.
Good shape but overall too flat and strained. Areas to improve: General shading (not enough around eyes and mouth).
Stuart, 03.02.15, ~40 minutes.
Good shape and likeness but again too flat. Areas to improve: Overall shading (too muddy and not enough in places)
Tone, 04.02.15, ~60 minutes.
Excellent likeness and tone. Areas to improve: Eyes (again too high), Neck (does not look connected to head).
Julia, 16.02.15. 3-4 hours.
Good use of colour but poor resemblance. Areas to improve: Shape and brushwork.
Gerda, 21.02.15, 5-6 hours.
Good resemblance and likeness. Areas to improve: colours (dont quite match, but then arent awful either).
Tone, 04.03.2015, ~8 hours.
Veyr pleased with this one, I was a lot less rigid with myself and did not aim for photorealism but instead more painterly. Also played with subtle colours a bit more.
Stuart, 23.03.2015, ~9 hours.
I am over the moon about this piece. This was my first attempt at more abstract and expressive colours, textures and, expression and I have exceeded all expectations.
Karolina, 28.03.15, ~10 hours.
Excellent likeness and tone. Unsure about the hues and background though. A bit unharmonious.
Louise 03.04.15, ~12 hours.
Good likeness and expression. The hues could be blended better in places though.
