# 5 and a WINNER

Today is my 3rd Blogaversary! :)
Here is the winner of a giveaway that started a week ago in honor of this event. :)
Congratulations Shay Fourney!

Please send me your snail address via e-mail and I'll send this girly on her way to you. Thank you everyone for entering the drawing and for all your sweet comments.

And I'd like to thank my blog followers (over 400 now) and my FB fans (almost 600) for all the love and support. Thanks so much for all the commenting and "liking".  :) I deeply appreciate it!

I thought I might share with you how this painting looked like in the ugly stages. :)) I'm not that fond of her but that's why I took up this 29 Faces challenge to get comfortable with portraits and improve over all.

  6. I dig the alien in the ugly stages I guess that is how the face gets its amazing depth.

  8. I also start with a blue underpainting. I quite like this stage because I think the hardest part is getting everthing in the right place. It's also a great guideline for the shading, which I have to say you have done a great job with. This girl is fantastic.

  9. You've transformed her and made her look beautiful and expressive and I appreciate you sharing the beginning photo. The underpainting really helps. She's come alive in the final painting!

    Congrats to Shay!!

  13. I really like her! I'm on my ipad outside while my son plays and there is too much of a glare to see the details. I need to check her out again inside. Her expression is "satisfied"
