I found some really nice photos of various model portraits that I really liked, especially the ones with stronger emotions which I need more practice with. (you can find the original photo here… I didn't quite get the full emotions of the photo so I need to more practice)

Near the end of the painting I decided to add some of my own lighting and tattoo to it lol. The word on face is Chinese for hate.

I get the vibe that her resolve is more real and solid than the chaos about to engulf her, very nice :nod:

I really like it. The Chinese symbol tattoo was a beautiful addition, my favorite part of the piece! Her eyes are very intense too, and I like how her hair is caught in the wind - gives a violent sense of movement to the piece.

Yeah, that's I feeling that we have all felt before that's for sure.

It is gorgeous, I´m really interested, what emotion do you think, is missing? I can see anger and boldness in both. Maybe a glimpse of softness or hope is in the photo, that I miss here. I dunno, why I can see hope in the photo and I´m not sure. Could be wrong impression.

I love the red glow. It's dramatic without being too intense

I think the biggest difference between yours and the original is the lower eyelid, which almost seems to have some aegyo sal.

Comparing the artwork and the reference, I believe that it's the squint that makes her hatred seem more intense. Otherwise, the lighting here is better since it's more intense!

Strong emotions on portraits is something I gravitate towards as well...makes you wonder what this subject is thinking about that would draw that sort of expression...?

I think you did a fantastic job and capured the emotions quite well! Also, the tattoo is a very fitting addition :)
wow. Awesome!!!
