April ID II by mynti April ID II by mynti
I'm redoing my ID so that ~hopeful1 can see a pastel palette. It isn't strictly pastels, but it's as high-key as I dare go.

:D

This is a kick your own ass project, as well as a daily doodle.... Here's that deviation: [link]

:dance: Thanks for lookin!

Edit 04.06 - Added another hour and cleaned it up a bit/fixed some errors.

Hmmm no, I wasn't any good at it. :D I played the clarinet for 8 years until I gave it up for art.

It's cool that you can capture yourself in your artworks. I love the little detail done on the edge of your hair - the castle and spirals. Very nice!

Thanks, I practiced on myself when I was young because no one else in my family would sit for portraits for me to practice. So I learned by drawing myself for the past 15 years... it comes easy.

I certainly do ID commissions for a relatively low price (about $50 for something like this.) But it depends on the photos you provide :giggle: Sometimes it takes me longer to paint if the photos are an odd angle, blurry, or otherwise too dark/yucky. It takes a lot more imagination and time to come up with the facial structure when I have to battle bad photoreferences.

Anyhow I'm glad you like my ID! :dance:

I love how whimsical this is! :D It's almost photorealistic, but there's also an element of playfulness to it: from the marker-written letters to the castle and mushrooms and various fantasy creatures in your hair to the way the picture disintegrates at various points into... textures and curious shapes. It's very fresh and appealing and... minty!

Aha! Thank you! I actually was like "Oh! Looks like pastels!" and then read the description. :D
And I like the way you did your hair! (I have lack of many girly skills, one of them being the ability to put up my hair...). Your eyes are gorgeous too. I like your painterly style!
:glomp: Thanks again!
