heres a portrait I've been working on for about 1-2 hours now. It's still in the rough stages...right now, this is where I'm figuring out the colors I'm using, and define the background.
im...i dont know. you know when you have a painting and you like it well enough but at the same time theres something about it that you know looks off or hasn't been pushed far enough? I don't know. Theres something off about the colors of this piece to me but I can't place it. I feel like i can push it to make it really dramatic and aesthetically pleasing but I don't know how. Instead of fighting with it until I give up I figured I'd throw it at the art community and see if I could get some feedback that I could then learn from before i move onto the rendering process. I would really appreciate any and all help -- critiques, overpainting, suggestions, tips.
