I really struggled in this piece to attempt to accurately reflects my skin tone. I find that I struggle with that a lot. I really don't like color mixing, it is just so tedious, and often times I run out of a color and can't remake it perfectly enough. During one studio day, I made my skin tone waaaaay to dark, which i had to correct in later days. I really didn't like the process of painting this, the paint at school doesn't act like the paint at my house, and I was struggling to use it effectively. I kind of don't like it because there is such poor craftsmanship and I had so many problems with its construction. I do really like some parts like the lips and texture of the hair, but overall it is simply a satisfactory piece.
I am a sleep deprived artist trying to make ends meet. :)
