Second submission, a portrait as promised.
Really grateful for this challenge just for the fact that it's got me drawing again. Been so busy with college this year.
Original was my first ever serious drawing done with my first ever Wacom (Bamboo). Never had a tablet before, only used pencils till then, so tried to emulate that for familiarities sake. I used to love that portrait x)
Now that I've used the tablet for so long, haven't used the pencil in ages xD
still a long ways to go though, but seeing improvement is always a good boost for morale ^^
Thanks for viewing!
Edit: The original pencil drawing was based off of an Ian Mccaig tutorial that i watched in college two years ago. No wonder it turned out better than most of the other stuff i did those first few months aaahahaha x)
Completely forgot about that till recently
Wish i had that tutorial now for the colouring part. It was way out of my league back then, but it would have been so cool to see if i could follow along with it now.
