29 Faces Challenge - Day 5: Winston the Gnome

Day 5: Winston the Gnome


Winston isn't who one would call 'happy-go-lucky.' He's a very serious fellow and is not easily amused. As you can see, he keeps his beard and 'stache trimmed to perfection, for his facial hair is his crowning glory. The day a speck of dirt is spotted upon his attire (which always meets the gnome status quo) is the day the sun never rises. Winston doesn't take his appearance lightly and believes strongly in good first impressions.

Besides his pretentious tendencies and stern disposition, he has a soft spot for mushrooms and their elegance. Not a day passes that this stout, little man doesn't pay a visit to the mushrooms that grow around his home. One could ask any of his neighbors and they would all tell you the same thing - that the only thing that can soften old Winston's cold exterior is a few minutes spent with his beloved mushrooms.

29 Faces Challenge - Day 4: Tattoo Girl

Day 4: The Tattoo Girl

First, thank you to everyone who has been checking out my faces. Your comments mean a lot!

I started this face a couple days ago, added the tattoos earlier today, and have been using the day to finish her in Photoshop. She's one of my personal favorites:) I'm also thinking of writing a short story for her because she seems like she has one...:)

This is my sketch at the beginning.

And here is the finished product:) I'm really impressed with her. She is the best I've done so far since I started using Photoshop.

I'd love to hear what you guys think of her! Thanks!

29 Faces Challenge - Day 3

Face 3

I'm so obsessed with eyes - seriously. I love them just because they can tell so much. So much emotion and personality can be portrayed through eyes. Eyes are the first thing I draw when I start a face. From there, I can just let the eyes tell me where to draw.

This is just the sketch. I sketched this a few days ago, and now I'm going to play with it in Photoshop. Hopefully I'll have it finished soon!

To make this face, I sketched it first and then used Photoshop for the rest.
