Total fiasco...

My face today is a total fiasco :oP I decided to make a male face, and to make someone very recognizable. So yes, you can tell it is Dali, but half way there i lost interest. You can tell by the cat next to him LOL Horrible!
Oh well... this goes to show there are some days that it just counts as an effort, but not a well done job. It is still learning! :o)


Tomorrow I will either erase the cat and finish the portrait, or give up all together.

  2. I vote for "keep going" as well - It may need work - but I think it is a wonderful image!

  4. I loves it! I don't think it's horrible at all. I love the whimsy of it, and the cat makes it work in my opinion.

  5. Great job with the eyes. I don't think it's a fiasco at all. I resist doing male faces, and when I try, they still end up looking like women!

    1. Debbie, look in my old posting for the "June Guys" I have a lot of male portraits and tips on how to make the face look masculine. (On my side bar you can see the icon for it)

  8. It is beautiful simply because it flowed from your head to your heart, to your hands and then forever on the paper. It took a very,very bad multiple diagnosis for me to learn that, I hope you find that peace in yourself without the same. Never throw out what you create, whether it is museum quality or something you don't even know what it is. Art is our soul, not a formidable critic. Oh, and BTW I think it looks awesome. :)
