For the reference I choose my own photo, just for fun :) I was interested if I can look like minimalistic and fashion model. So this is me
I didn't want to make a portrait too realistic, so I decided to draw it on eye. I started with ellipse and proportional lines as it was shown in mini lessons. Then I identified my eyes as almond like and eyebrows as arch like. Nose and lips were pretty easy to draw, I stuck a bit with face shape. I thought it's better to highlight only forehead and chin. So here my sketch
And this is a final sketch too, cause I forgot to make earlier shot.
I work in Illustrator CC, but almost all things about it are the same. But for the first time it was pretty hard to not make too many lines.
I edited hair and eyes about 10 or more times. I still don't like it. I think there must be an accent, but I don't see it.
And added some color
Guys if you have any suggestions how I can improbe this artwork, I would be happy to know :) Thanks a lot for watching and huge thanks to the teacher! This class is one of the most useful I've seen here.
