Student WIP – Alan


Hi Matt,

This is what I’m currently working on, I started off from a reference for the pose and the clothing then based the hairstyle and face on a different picture. I wanted to ask for your help on two things:

– I like the idea of having the light coming from the top / top-right but I’m having a hard time rendering the face accordingly, can you give me some pointers?

– The other issue I’m having is with her hair, I feel like once I remove the line drawing on top a lot of the structure gets lost (I get the same feeling with the face to be honest), what can I do to avoid this? I’d like to keep my finished pieces without any kind of line art, but in this one I can’t help but feel like the one with the sketch on top looks much better. I’m uploading both versions so you can see.

Thanks as always!
