Elf - oil painting WIP by Qinni Elf - oil painting WIP by Qinni
my Tumblr

Oil painting again :D~ It's really fun! But really hard to control =A=;;~
Getting to this stage took about 2.5 hours, on 10 x 12inch canvas.

why did i choose a frontal view to reference from? gah! I'm really not very good with symmetry >A<;; I usually like to flip it in the computer to make sure it's looking okay hahaha....no flipping with canvas =A=;;

ps. I'm painting in this room with no mirror while waiting for my brother's art class to finish xD;.

pps. The blotches of colour on the side was because while I was painting the painting accidentally fell on top of my colour pallet =A=;;;.

Ahh she's beautiful, I love the medium you used and I was wondering if you posted a finished version (or not)?

In response to your pps: I dunno if that was luck or fate. Those little blotches just add to the painting XD

The blotches totally work with the piece. Happy mistakes are the best ones!

This portrait has a lot of pleasant, warm colors. I would critique the fact that her lower lip is enormous, but perhaps that is a stylistic choice. It's interesting to see your work in a traditional medium.
