Female Face Tutorial 2

Here is part 2 of my Female Face Tutorial. It was a real challenge to make this tutorial because I don't want to dictate one method of painting. What I present to you in this tutorial is a method of thinking when you color.

Once you learn how to think in basic shapes and understand lighting it helps open your mind to paint. In the tutorial I have divided the face in various shapes as best I could. You can divide to what ever you find easy to work with.

You can view the finished image on my profile or on my site opelm.com

Great tutorial.
Good job.

loved it

another great Tutorial!

It's very well done. You don't always have to have a selected light source unless you plan to do it as scene picture. Most scene pictures are constructed in a way for light to float everywhere. For a Non-background its best if you make light to float exactly in front of the face or behind it. Alphonse Mucha does this a lot with his works. Other than that, it's constructed beautifully.
