Question for you… wich portrait do you prefer? The first one or this new one and why? Please let me know in the comments below 😊 You can see the first one on my profile. This is portrait number 2 of the series of 3. This one was a little harder and quite frankly I'm not 💯satisfied. But I learned a lot: Lesson 01: I went too fast in the rendering. The light direction wasn't thought properly and the illustration has/is suffered from it. Lesson 02: I should have painted the whole portrait first then apply the clouds on its own layer. I would have had more control over the edge over her face. Lesson learned… now let's apply this to the next portrait of this series 😃🌈☁️ #digitalartist #art #digitalart #instaart #artwork #instaartist #artistsoninstagram #digitaldrawing #artist #illustration #digitalpainting #drawing #digitalillustration #artoftheday #sketch #myart #graphicdesign #photoshop #arte #instadigitalart #illustrator #digital #sketchbook #color #painting #doodle #myself #creative #design #picoftheday

"Never apologize for burning too brightly or collapsing into yourself every night. That is how galaxies are made." -Tyler Kent White - - - 🌼Some life update🌼. I just hit 100k followers, that's crazy!! Thank you all so much for your ongoing support, really appreciate it! ❤ Its been a roller coaster ride for me this year, lots of ups and downs - quit my studio job and became a full time freelancer, lots of self doubt and mental struggles, thinking of quiting art and pursue other things in life, but thanks to my supportive family and boyfriend, I was able to continue doing art. Freelancing wasn't easy in the beginning, I had to manage everything all by myself, which is kinda mentally exhausting, but I'm learning and improving each day! Last but not least, thank you all for making this happen by supporting me! I'm very grateful for everything! This will be one of my Patreon rewards for December! Support me on Patreon for exclusive video process, step by step, high res image, PSD and sketches! (Link in bio) 😊 - - - #artistoninstagram #artist #drawing #art #illustration #painting #galaxy
