Portrait Study April
Had to do a lot of printing today for upcoming convention so I really enjoyed doing this "cooling-down" portrait study.  It started with a reference but I got carried away on the painterly aspect - which was the intention, not to copy but to capture the expression, yadda, yadda... Seems, I slowly get the hang of this ;)

Attached you find an animated gif for the process. Done in Photoshop, around 2,5 hours from scratch.

All patrons will get a hires version and psd of this, thanks so much for your support
