Tanna - A Complete Portrait

Well, we made it. We are now in South West Missouri and boy was I right about the thunderstorms. We have been here for a couple of days now and the storms have been pretty fierce. I actually love it. One of the bad things about living in Southern California is the complete lack of storms. They simply do not exist and I missed them terribly.

It took a couple of days to get settled in and get our internet connection up and running, but I am now ready to move on with the lessons. Later tonight, or sometime tomorrow I will be writing up the post on how to make eyes look realistic. I ran into a problem when drawing Tanna's eyes and I will explain how to avoid the issue.

I spent the better part of the morning and afternoon finishing up the portrait so that I could show it to you all before diving into the step by step process.

Here is the finished portrait of Tanna Anne.
