1st Wedding Anniversary Graphite Portrait - wip9


The background has been loosley set in and still requires some refinement but I want to keep it soft so that it does not compete for attention with the bride and groom. Bret's suit is starting to take shape. The pinstripes have been added to his jacket and will be blended in and more lights and darks will be added to create shape. I have exagerated some of the curves in the pinstripes to give the illusion of the shape of the jacket as if they were totally straight it would flatten his body rather than add depth.
More of the detail has been added to Tina's dress and feet as well but still more work is required to give more depth as well.
