This is a portrait of Aisha (inspiration via sktchy). What drew me to her photo was the high contrast of her illuminated face against her dark hair and an even darker background. Her face is slightly angled upwards towards the light source and her expression seems delicate and vulnerable. Click here to see Aisha’s inspiration photo on Sktchy.
I started out by roughing in her eyes, nose, & mouth. Then is was just a matter of working my way out from there.
