Graphite Memorial Portrait Commission - Ricky Update #1
His left eye (viewer's right) is a little off above the iris right now and will be shaped better for the next update. I have not done any further edits on Gagan yet. My client's are quite happy with him so far so I will continue to work on his resemblance until I am as close as I think I can get it.
I also did a bit more work on Rocky. I think his eyes are pretty close now, just need to soften his lash line a touch and blend his brows in more so they look less cut out. I have added a bit more shading to his cheek and hairline but I am not sure if it is correct, I will wait to hear back from my client on that. The photo I am working from his cheeks are more rounded so I need to refer to my client's expertise on this :) His lips looked fine until I saw them online and now I am thinking they are still too feminine looking. I think the highlights and cupids bow are a little too strong so I will soften them and see if that does the trick.
So my client, Rocky & Ricky's sister, Gagan's cousin, did the Ride to Conquer Cancer this past weekend, rain, wind and cold so I hope it was a success and she can still walk today! Check out the CBC article and a link to the Ride to Conquer Cancer's website.
