I finally managed to finish Eddie Redmayne’s portrait and I’m quite happy how it turned out.
I redrew the shape of his face and made his chin and forehead look a bit bigger. I also did the mouth again because he was smiling a bit too much 😀
So here is he:
I love how the freckles make him look so charming. Do you find freckles attractive…or is it just me? 😀 I think they look really cute on most people!
This was the first time I used brown SM.LT paper and I can say it worked quite well! It was easy to do the shading….actually I mostly emphasised the light parts and the very dark parts….the middle shades were mostly covered by the brown paper which was really handy. To draw on the paper I used soft pastels and Faber-Castell polychromos.

I hope you like the portrait. I’d love to read your comments!
