who are you, girl in blue?

Here's the last portrait of the term from tonight.

Had two, 3 hour sessions to work on it. I struggled a bit during the first sitting but felt like I was able to tie it all together in the end. The model was looking around the entire time so I had trouble capturing the inquisitive expression that he had while his eyes were to the left. Felt that it'd make for a more interesting portrait that way rather than when he was looking straight ahead. Much thanks to Ron for all the help. This definitely wouldn't have turned out the way it did without the guidance from class.

Also, apologies in the picture quality. For once, i'm actually somewhat satisfied with the drawing and wanted to take pictures right away. The subtleties in the face and arms can't really be seen under poor lighting.. i'll take close ups during the day time. I had a lot of fun in the 2nd sitting and kinda just dove into rendering without all the caution and hesitation that I usually have. Sometimes you just gotta go for it [art, music, love], right?
