Shyanne and Lina hugging

This is my grandaughter Shyanne and daughter Lina that I painted from scratch, not a photo manipulation. Using a wacom tablet ans Painter Classic software to paint this digitally.

Stunning, and so real. Your work is beautiful.

Artist Reply: Thank you Joseph! I'm working at becoming more realistic. Skin tones are finally getting better. Hair and eyes drive me nuts still.

If thats scratch .....WoW!!!!!.......thats fantastic. I still can barely color with my tablet.

Artist Reply: Thanks Tazda! I used several photos as refernce shots as I painted it from scratch. I liked the pose Lina had hugging her daughter, but Shyanne was coved in food smears and grimacing in the photos with this pose. I had to hunt through a dozen or so to find a smile to paint that had the right angle of her head shot. I've practice doing portraits for the last 3 years to improve my work. SOme I can do quickly, others I struggle with. Took a while to figure out hair and details, still need to improve those wo areas before I'm happy. I usually put on a split screen the photos I am looking at as I paint. I can clone the hair and skin tones if I need to, but I usually do it to start and warm up the tones myself as I work and blen colors together to look smotther. I use a "Just water" brush for blending usually to get a better blend.
