Brony,

Your daughters are lovely.

Second daughter's eyeball centers seem to be too different from each other - one bigger than the other.

Otherwise, it looks like it's going to be really good.  Love the eyelashes and eyebrows.

The right hand one is centered now though :clap: :clap:

hi nolan when u say right eye, do u mean with me looking at the subject or right eye if they were standing next to me?.

i have got a little more confidence in my first daughters portriat withtonal values. please let me know what u think!!!

I am having a great time learning from the portrait course and applying it to my beautifulchildren as subjects. hopefully the mouth tutoria will be up by tomorrow so i can follow. just want to say thanku to everone for your opinions and input, it really helps!!!! :) :) :)

Nice job Brony, the pupil mismatch Nolan mentioned is still off-putting, as you look at the picture, the left pupil has a white highlight cupping the lower left and that pushes the pupil up and to the right so that it doesn't agree with the right one...  otherwise you have nailed this one! Bravo! :clap: :clap:

when I talk about left I always refer to my left, ie., the eye on the left hand side of the canvas

I have merged all your portraits into one topic, that way it is easier to find and they are all together so it is easier to follow your progress O0

Firstly thanku nolan for merging my studies. today i followed the mouth drawing lesson and applied it to my portrait of my daughter. So good r Nolan's detailed lessons. :clap: :clap: i spent six hours on this today. Hopefully i have made improvements on her eyes???.  I seem to have indented marks in my work around mouth. i have probably over worked it as i tend to do!!! :confused: :confused:! anyways would love any feedback on this before i travel any further!!!

Brony,

The drawing of your daughter is coming along quite well.

I realize your daughter has light hair, but it seems to be too light as it goes behind her neck.

Otherwise, I'm sure she will be pleased with how well you are doing with it.

thanku i haven't really started on the hair yet i have just penciled it in very lightly for now. today i really just focused on her mouth.  had lots of enjoyment learning today :) :) :)

this is the colour reference of my daughter that i am working from. its the freckles (Kisses from the Sun) i am worried about

the eyes are looking at you now Brony. :clap: :clap: :clap:
The bottom lip still needs some shading, it is round so goes darker to the bottom and very dark as it goes into the mouth, look carefully at your reference photo and you will see it. O0
