Graphite Memorial Portrait Commission - Rocky Update
I have slimmed down his face from how it appears in the reference photo and I am not sure the area under his chin needs to be darkened or if his chin needs to be lightened as once I slimmed him down a bit, this area is really screaming at me. I need to leave it alone for a bit to see if it starts screaming something useful ;)
I also think his lips may be over pronounced but it is tricky to see in the reference photo as his lips blur into his skin so I will see what my client says about the shape before doing any further adjustments. His moustache stubble does need to be softened and the area just above his lips is a little too bright right now but I want to wait again on this for fresh eyes to make further adjustments.
I will move onto Gagan's portrait and come back to Rocky once my eyes are fresher :)
