Thumbelina Portraits take two

I decided I wasn't happy with my initial series of portraits working out Thumbelina's look and attitude, so I started over. I'm happy with how these are coming compared to the first iteration I did- I feel like these have more personality and are just painted/drawn better. I'm going to tidy up the outfits and work on really describing the different materials. I'll post a finished version soon.

Painting from life

I finally dragged my computer along with me to life drawing to do some digital painting from a live model. I did a few warm up sketches and a prelimary drawing as well- I think I spent about 2 hours on it. I'm happy with how it went considering how long its been since I've painted a model in person, but I think in the future I'll devote the whole 3 hour session to paining. I'll probably take a crack at finishing the figure from memory and the room from life. I'll post the finished piece if I do.
