Illustration from a character I'd left around for a while. This is as far as I feel I can take it right now, but I hope you like it!
I learned the tip to check back on the initial sketch as I go rendering way too late, but I liked the way it evolved. I can see what Sinix said in a video is true, the sketch does feel more fluid and powerful, and rendering can take some of that strength out in the process. In my case, it's now a completely different woman's face, but that's something I want to keep now.
As always, I'll be updating this piece as I can and thanks for using your eye lubricant on this!
