Making A Chiaroscuro Portrait Part 2
10 STEPS
Welcome back!
1
The first pass of added value
2
Notice: I have too much shadow above the eye but this is an easy fix because its my first pass
3
Second pass: blending some of your base values when you are confident in your placement
4
Take your time, work your way in!
5
I like to throw in my true black in my second pass to understand my mid tones better
6
Your last pass should be fine details. See the detail before and after in the lips?
7
Last, leave it alone. Come back at a later date to fine tune. You see the whole much better that way
8
I still have a bunch to do to differentiate my midtones, but it is time to call it a day! Have fun!
9
It is a new day and with fresh eyes I can tackle my midtones and some technical issues!
