Into The Forest (selfportrait)

My boyfriend and my older son don't like this painting, saying it makes me ugly.
My 1-year old, instead, recognized me at once.
I must say, I've got a strong feeling of freedom while painting myself as a forest troll, surrounded by (some) of the creatures I meet daily. The art world is filled with pretty girls, so let´s go and fill the room of the ugly ones, instead!

painted in PS from scratch, as usual. (and based on a picture my 5-years old took of me, wearing a fake troll nose :D)

Woman with Meconopsis

Simple portrait practice, in PS, 1-2 hours max. I need desperately practice again, since during holidays I couldn't use my Wacom. Maybe I'll do something more advanced lately with this reference.
Referenced from this beautiful picture at DeviantArt.
I didn't look for a photorealistic style, just keep it as it was a pencil/ink drawing, to experiment a new style. Used round brush, kept very elliptic.
