First, I chose these two photos as my emotion portrait, and did some filters on.
I wanted to combine the halos with photos, I used halos to enhance the feature of my face.
I made these two sketches, but the proportion of the face was not right at that time, and I did some practices.
After finishing my sketches, I add the first layer of watercolor. I wasn’t not so satisfied with my first try.
I did some practices again, and I thought about the way of painting eyes and lips at the same time to create my own style
.After few round of trying, I was able to use colors in a more clean and clear way, here is the comparison.
.Here are some sketches.
/I wanted to use watercolor to create the feeling of halo in my final work/
I did two version of my final work, and I chose the one just pained one eye because it can express my emotion better.
Then I scan the painting and use photoshop to so some changes.
Here is my first final work
I added the feeling of halos intentionally on this piece.
/However, I was not satisfied with this piece, so I redo it again./
This time, I minimize the feeling of halo, and used more diversity of colors
.I painted the feature of my face in few different ways, in the shadow, or in the light, and I changed the color of my painting and made a collection.
Because the emotion in this painting is kind of helpless,
so I made it the feeling of broken glass, but still keep the full part of my right eye to express the feeling.
Here is my final work
I got some inspirations again, I love the texture of crystal, and I think my personality is kind of like “crystal”.
It looks strong, but actually very delicate inside, therefore, I combined crystal with my portrait.
I also think crystal is a shine and light material, so I place it at the light part of my portrait.
