Wedding Portrait - WIP#6

Karen is starting to really look like Karen now, even without the eyes drawn in. It is very weird for me to leave the eyes to the end but I am using a poor reference photo and am dreading drawing what I can hardly see ... always get a good reference photo! I have 'roughed up' Mike's skin a little as he was looking much too young, sorry Mike. I have darkened Mike and Karen's skin again. I constantly go back and modify the dark's and lights to compensate for any darks/lights that I have added. It took several layers on Karen's neck to build up the muscle tone. Her cheek that is touching Mike's was too plump so I thinned it out more and I am much happier with the resemblance.
