Jon Snow and Ygritte by kaleadora Jon Snow and Ygritte by kaleadora
A set of matched portraits.  I've been practicing my painting skills.

Jon Snow and Ygritte are characters from the series A Song of Ice and Fire by George R.R. Martin.  (They also appear in the HBO series Game of Thrones, but they don't look like this.)

Nicely done. I like the little light blue accents.

You might consider revisiting Jon and bringing out the back of his head a bit. It is a little flat and shallow. Typically the jaw is the center point on a profile and the back of the head and front of the face are balanced between. It may also be that his thicker neck suggests that the back of his skull should extend further.

You did do a lovely job on the skin tones and I love Ygritte's curly red hair.

Haha, took me awhile to reply to this. THANK YOU FOR COMMENTING. It drives me bonkers when no one comments on pieces of which I'm genuinely proud. I'm particularly pleased with the skin tones, so double thank you for mentioning that. I see what you mean with the back of Jon's head; thanks for the rule-of-thumb tip about the jaw!

You're most welcome! I understand the taking forever thing. Toddlers do that to you *grin.*

I have several more little tips on my face proportion worksheets if you're interested.
