One of the reasons why I've been absent for so long:
I've finally watched all episodes of Game of Thrones season 1 (unfortunately not in German tv yet) and started reading the Song of Fire and Ice book two because I was so curious how it would go on.
So when I started doodling a face a few days ago I knew I would turn it in something more fantasy-like
She's a little bit inspired by Sansa Stark from GoT, but I didn't mean to portray her. That's why I gave her another name. Clothes are inspired by some Renaissance paintings.
No direct reference for her, but a few photographs of different faces that helped me with the lighting. The background contains overpainted textures from my own photographs. Lazy background, I know. But want to move on to other paintings.
Painted in Photoshop, AzPainter, Mypaint. About a day of work. Will probably revise this one soon. I'm still not happy with some parts, but pretty proud of the face.
