I started using a lot of hard, heavy colors, and after finishing, I realized it didn't look like me or my boyfriend at all. There was no way to go back and fix the features, so I had to restart.
I noticed that instead of using the heavy colors to show emotion, I wanted to use lighter, wash colors to show the feelings.
This time around I think it's safe to say I got the proportions right. I liked the positioning of or faces, because he's lifting me up, and I'm looking to him. And I liked to show that. I didn't like, however, how the features were so light. I almost felt that if I darkened them, it would ruin the entire picture.
So I took a picture of it how it was, just in case I liked the simple version better. Then I added an extra step. Maybe adding some crazy color like I did with my other pictures would make it look better.
