    Urrgghhh.... around 3 hours in. I am really in need of musicmacd’s internet courses as I got really no idea what I am doing here. 7BA8771C-34E8-46F6-8BCF-562BBF01E46F.jpeg For some reason, the face appears grey-ish in this photo; in reality it looks more like a pink hue.

    Thanks Greg. You’re right, taking it easy is the key... slowing down and taking breaks whenever necessary.

    Another hour before going to sleep. I actually enjoyed working on the mouth and teeth - something I dreaded to do when I started this piece. 89C51448-5A0C-4D06-8021-0C41ED9CFC84.jpeg

    That looks really really good. As someone who is just getting started with an airbrush I like that you put how long it took you. I feel like I am moving very slowly but I obviously need to slow down. Keep up the great work can't wait to see it come together.

    You’ll nail it Franc. Don’t over think it and relax Mate. You’re more than capable of this. “Do or do not, there is no try” - Master Yoda.

    Thanks Greg. I am a beginner myself. Every time I fire up the compressor I feel like starting painting for the very first time. I think it’s helpful to budget time ahead how long one wants to work on a certain area of the painting, so things are less rushed.

    Some modest progress today. Have to take breaks as mistakes and errors start to sneak in. It’s too easy to overdo it and go too dark. Will continue tomorrow, mostly on the neck and also hair. 7F7B1505-6CA5-4FC7-AAB7-36491F9EF6D7.jpeg

    This is looking super Franc, it's already been said, dont rush it, keep it light and slow. You have this no problem. You have the skills to do it.

    Thanks Lee. Am not sure about the skills, but every dog has its day.

    You sound just like a few artists I know, "not sure about the skills" it's something they say all the time.. I used to say it too but I have changed the way I perceive myself now. I know I have the skills (so do you), don't get me wrong I still make mistakes, (some massive ones) most I can fix. It doesn't make me paint perfect pics every time but the difference is now I have the confidence and more importantly I do not doubt myself any more.. I know I've babbled on a bit but I hope it's all positive vibes. Keep up this excellent work Franc, I love your paintings, they inspire me to paint. You inspire a LOT of people here with your art. Thankyou! Now go and paint the pic of your beautiful daughter.

    Thank you so much Lee. Your remarks are always very motivating for me. Yes, I am too humble too often, but that’s also part of my motivation well, too, as I am always finding something to improve upon and aspire towards. This forum is so great as it really helps to catalyze the process.

    Started working on the hair. This may take a while. A4CC966C-F750-4188-803C-1E29AFA8EEFC.jpeg

    Some more progress. I want it to be sci-fi without “looking” sci-fi. Needless to say that my daughter wasn’t very pleased when she discovered a QR code on her forehead.
    Next will be the clothes. I am still undecided whether or not to add a background. 1C35853E-6D3C-472A-AB35-D29A22F16438.jpeg

    ... and I think I am done. I am calling this painting ‘Identity’. BBA38154-DC3A-4F81-AA4A-305D9361987D.jpeg

    Thanks a lot Greg. Yes, I really enjoyed it and I like the result. I probably will paint another portrait soon. There is something magic about having people come to "life" with airbrush.
