...or, the alternate title..."I use too much blue highlighting"

Anyway, this is some random thing I did for 4 hours this evening. I don't know where it came from, I don't know where it's going, and I don't know if it's going to be home in time for dinner. I just wanted to draw a face and got...carried away, I guess. I was trying to go fast and be less detail oriented and more...feeling oriented if that makes any sense. I was trying to get this done in under 2 hours or so, but it never works out that way for me. Although I'm glad it didn't take me too long like the last time I tried something similar.

This was painted from my head. I've always wondered who it is that I paint when I don't use a reference. Is it a composite of people I know? Is it a set of features I find attractive? Is it what I would look like as a girl?! =P I'm curious....

My rambling aside, thanks for looking. ^^ And the title is french for "of the sun" or something like that. It's called adding fake class to a boring title. XD

EDIT: Okay, I went back and tried to make her hair seem more thick. I think it looks a bit better now, maybe, although white hair is a hard color to work with. >_< Also, I tweaked almost, lighting, you name it, I went back and reworked it a bit. Hope it looks a bit better now. ^^

Incredible...the accents on her lips and nose are particuarly nice. The clouds look a bit rough, but that's only a nitpick. Overall amazing piece.

Well, I spent like 15 minutes on the clouds, so that's to be expected. XD Thank you still.

You did a great job of coloring this. As for people that draw from the top of their head, they tend to add their own features on the character. But I doubt that is the case with you since you must have a lot of experience with drawing people.

All I do is draw people it seems. I should draw a landscape or two just to break the cycle, perhaps. ^^;
