Luthien - water colours by Ingvild-S Luthien - water colours by Ingvild-S
Before:
Luthien sketch by Ingvild-S

Yes, I'm aware this isn't in any way perfect, but to me, who hasn't picked up a brush in literally a year, I think this is perfect. I struggled like HELL with the skin colour, so I'm sorry it is kinda patchy at places, yet I am really happy with this portrait. I hadn't hoped to do it any better for my first time. And it was SO much fun, so maybe I'll do more of these!^^

Her hair is supposed to be black, but I tired to use the blue as a replacement, as black doesnt really work out with water colour. It was a seriously fun experiment, and I am so glad I decided to do this.
5+/- hours with paint, and 5 +/- with pencil at first.

Luthien (C)

..I am not sure how to even get a skin tone in watercolor lol. This is really beautiful though, I think her skin tone is fine, and the blue works since Luthien is associated with that color anyway. I love her facial structure, and the slight curly flow of her hair. Lovely work. :heart: I look forward to more of your paintings. :)

Wow, thank you! This was a quick first sketch, I only wished I had more time to paint! Maybe after my exam!^^ I really loved doing this, even if I had NO idea what I was doing! x)
I liked her face in the sketch better than the painted version, but I still love this, so I am really glad you liked it! :blush: Thank you! :heart:
