Monochrome Face by KnavesAndKnots Monochrome Face by KnavesAndKnots
Eye practice that became face practice. The eyes were based on the techniques in =adelenta 's eye tutorial video. After that, I thought the eyes were good enough to deserve a face, so I filled in the rest. No references for that, quite proud.

This is my first work to be completed with my new intuos 4 tablet. It was painted in Photoshop CS5 and took... I don't know how many hours... between 5 and 10.

Hope you like, comments welcome :)

Very nice. It has a light gothic feel to it, just because of the black and white tone used. Really like it!

Beautiful eyes! My eyes went straight to them. Really soulfull and deep! I like the contrast with the dark lips and hair to the light skin as well! Very good!

I feel like I'm in a different realm when I stare into her eyes! It's really enchanting. But somehow, the cheekbones kinda turn out a bit funny for me. :I Sorry, maybe it's just me.

The cheekbones? Interesting, I think I had issues shading the face generally, so that may be why. Anyway, thanks for your comment! :)

What an absolutely gorgeous piece. I love the shading and textures here. I really like the reflections in the eyes! That is something I'm still struggling with.
