Marieke

As a result of the family caricature I made a few weeks ago, I was asked to do another one.
I thought it would be interesting to show you how I work.
First I made this sketch from photos, I think it took me about 20 minutes.

Then I gave all the grey lines a 'dark flesh' tone in Photoshop.

Next step is colouring it in Painter Classic
.

I have to be careful not to give the face too saturized tones, it's still too pink I think.

OK, enough for today.
