How To Draw and Paint Drawgirl
Step 47

We continue with this Drawgirl tutorial by explaining and illustrating step number forty-seven of this pastel portrait painting process.

Like I said earlier when discussing this model's "crow's feet" around her eyes before the artist eliminated them, this pastellist is very observant. S/he could have stopped working on her mouth in the previous step and nobody would have noticed, however, the artist chose to fine tune the rendering of the lips by adding the small indents or cracks on them. So much so, in fact that she appears to almost need some chapstick or vaseline or medicated lipstick to heal the cracks. Does the degree of realism of her lips equal the degree of realism of her other features? You saw how much energy it took to work on the eyes and now the same thing just happened with the lips. With the completion of this step, it looks as though the artist has finally finished all of the model's features except for the rendering of her visible ear.

Your coloring process continues still in... Step 48.
