CG Model Painting

So, I tried another portrait painting. This one came off more finished looking than the first one.


I've always been afraid on trying portrait painting. I can't paint, but its great to see that I can do it. A little more practice then I'll get used to it. On this piece I tried doing it differently than the first one. I sketched out the guidelines of the face, referencing from a runway picture I stumbled on a google search. Then, I put in the basic colors on a different layer.


This time around, the "multiply" on the pen is off. This meant the colors wont be belnding on top of each other as it did on the Omahyra painting. I used solid colors of more varying shades, overlaying them on top of each other. Then, I added the shades of the background.



I, then, smoothen everything out, or mostly everything, to come up with the first picture above. It's almost done. I just need to perfect the tones and make the facial features more distinguished. What do you think? Does this style of painting look better than the Omahyra one?
