This is a portrait of my stepdaughter, a pretty and cute 13-year-old. I made it colorful because she loves colors and she still has this bright smile, although she went through some hard times. She only doesn't like the teeth, because she has a brace since a few weeks now and thinks I should have painted her teeth as they will be in a year . But I really like this little gap between her two front teeth!
I used Corel Painter (Trial) for the very first time to paint this and despite some performance problems here and there it was really fun to do it. On a lightly grained canvas, I used a pencil brush for the sketch, the colored pencils for the basic coloring and the crayons for the shading. I also used some blender brushes here and there very carefully.
