Here is an update. I have really bad habits, like doing everything on one layer.

LOL ~ now I can definitely tell it's a female!

This is looking really good so far! The thing that I would caution you about is going too light in your value range too soon. The problem is that you will run out of range and this flattens things out. If you grayscale an image of a person with even very light skin, the value of the skin is pretty medium in most cases. You can easily add a bit of contrast by playing with the levels of the image (Image > Adjustment > Levels, then adjust the sliders which represent the light, medium, and dark histograms) or even add a layer that is a bit darker on top of the present layer.

Keep up the good work!

Cheers,

~Rebeccak

Ah, this is really developing nicely. The eyes are really starting to come along ~ I think if you add a bit of a dropshadow beneath the lid on the eyeball, they will look even more convincing. I like the not completely rendered feeling of the nose and mouth, though the nose will look better with the addition of more shading and faceting about the nose's tip. The background tone is setting things off really nicely ~ looking forward to more progress on this!

Cheers,

~Rebecca

Hey,you are 14 .I think you have skills .Keep posting and progressing .May be if I had to give you advice it would be to be sure to start from the general for when you are doing a portrait.It's seems you are but just to stress it .For example like Lyneran in her master copy.

Bye

Mr Mu Thanks mate. I've got one eye watching your thread at all times! lol. Are you going to use the liquified version that Spirit Dreamer edited?

Hey Heartbeat, thanks for dropping by. I love your work. Could you please explain what you meant in your advice? I don't quite understand it.

Cheers,
Jack

Sorry for the confusion ,I meant :"to start from the general form" but I omitted a letter in my previous post.
For example when I start drawing a face I am sometimes tempted to draw the details early which is wrong.So first should be drawn the general forms- the form of the whole face ,devided to its parts then the shape of the eyesockets ,the shape of the nose ,the shape of the mouth(not the lips)and just after that the details like lips ,nostrils and eyelids.
But I don't say that you have done such a mistake I just wanted to point this out cause I think it's important.
I hope now it's more clear

Thank you Heartbeat, I know exactly what you are talking about. I find it so fustrating when I do detail and then find I have done it wrong. Thank you for pointing this out, I will now think twice before starting detail.

Cheers,
Jack
