I wanted today’s painting to have a playful feel to it. And I did my best to pull it off using multiple references. I thought the mouth would be hardest and was going to cover it with a bubblegum bubble (lol) it would’ve fit for the ‘playful’ theme but it felt a bit of a cop out and I wouldn’t’ve learned anything. So I tough loved myself and drew it.
But, interestingly, the mouth was somewhat easy compared to the eyebrows which were a different story – I had to erase and try again so many times. I’m pretty pleased with the result though. It’s something different and the effort feels real good.
