Revisiting the first PaperFace

Digital watercolor and pencil portrait of a woman covering her mouth with her wrist that has the word Vegan and birds tattoo to it. Wearing a black dress with birds and a white collar.

Well it’s been exactly two years since I started the PaperFaces Project. Thought it would be interesting to draw my wife again to see how much my skills had improved over the course of the project.

It wasn’t the most difficult photograph to recreate in Paper, seeing how the face is obscured and all that. But you can certainly see a change in technique and accuracy between the two.
