Eye see you!!! (More progress on Clouds portrait)


Finished blocking in the forehead. First the left eye:

Then the right:

Can you stand it!?! :-)

Keep in mind this is the underpainting phase. After everything is blocked in I go over it again to refine and add some detail. I'm really pleased with how this is going.

Kat I love it! Maybe it's just me but his eyes seem super reflective and bright. I almost see a reflection of clouds in Cloud's eyes. (I promise I'm totally sober!) :-)

Hi Kathleen~ This one makes me want to stroke his smooth little head. It's wonderful! I like how you are working from the ears down.

Kathleen,

Cloud's eyes are amazing! They look like a picture instead of a painting. Girl, you are good! Mom hates you. BOL (j/k)

Your blog makes me smile--I caught myself with a large one as I finished and Cloud's picture 'the End' flashed across the screen. Keep up the beautiful work!
