Another boring portrait!

Konoko doesn't smile often enough. I had the smiling 'talking head' in mind when I started this (bit obvious, isn't it?), but I think I prefer the uncoloured version.

Re: Another boring portrait!

That's some quality work, Fluffy.  Your portrait feels closer to Lorraine's style than the original talking head is.  A while back, I actually named the KONsmile image (and some others) in some private messages when I was discussing replacing some talking heads with better art.  The artist of KONsmile got wrong, among other things, Konoko's cheek line and the distance from her mouth to her chin, and you fixed both of those.  I'm also impressed with your recreation of the color palette and line style used in the original portraits.


byproducts are fine, but where's the beef?

Re: Another boring portrait!

Congrats, Fluffy. You really did a nice job... Perhaps her forehead is a bit too large. You should be able to fix it with just a touch or two to the hair, on the top right corner


What if this is as good as it gets?

Thanks, everyone!

Guido, I was hoping nobody would notice her giant forehead! It bugged me too, though, so I played around with it a little. It's probably still too large, but hopefully improved. The files have the same names as before, so a refresh may be in order if you don't see any change.

Re: Another boring portrait!

ok Fluffy, I dared to get my dirty hands on your picture (you just gave me an excuse to use again my tablet). I hope you can use my version as a working reference. You can compare yours and mine, and see if there are ways to improve it.

Last but not least, when you feel unsure about proportions and such, there is an old school trick nobody seems to use these days. Just flip horizontally your pic and you will be able to find out what's wrong.
