I think it's fair to say I took my jolly good time with this one. Really only working on it when I felt inspired and not forcing anything (ok ok, that's my 'creative person' speak for 'being lazy'). Initially I set myself out these pinterest challenges to work on my ability to replicate likeness of faces, but when I started this piece, the more I got into it, the less I used the reference picture and the more I enjoyed it! Look at me with the embracing of the creativity within!
Here is the original photo inspiration compared to my progress images.
Seeing as I went in a slightly different direction to the reference picture I decided to put the piece up on my society6 store for sale. It's available as your standard print, framed, or canvas, but I've also made it available as a phone cover, cushion, tote bag and clock! How progressive and trendy of me! Pretty sure it's available as a gift card too, so plenty of options if you want it for your own little hot hands. Yay for finally posting something art related!!
