(I apologize for the picture, it's VERY grainy and the painting does not look like this, however more updates will be added soon...)
Bill from True Blood WIP. I love doing faces and seriously cannot wait to do the eyes, it's one of my top 200 favorite things to do on a face. It's also somewhat challenging to resist laying in some real blacks, but I want to avoid grain from the gouache, and make all the texture my own with stipling like brush strokes. As it is now, there are about 12 layers of paint built up, not to make it overly smooth, but to avoid the natural grain of the black.
