I decided that my portrait work really needs a kick in the pants, so I decided to go through the stock portrait archive on deviantart and pick out faces that are somewhat close to the character description I was given.
So anyway, here’s my take on Galena:
Stock photo reference here. (I thought the lighting was pretty, and so are her eyes.)
Thia, being more of a fun character, I wanted something smiley, or even laughing:
Stock photo reference here. I liked the look on her face, but her shirt-thing can die in a fire. It’s like something off the clearance rack at Ross.
Anyway Kelty, I know these aren’t the references I sent you earlier, because I actually liked these better. 🙂
