Rare portrait in progress 4 - Floating

Just have Rare’s face to finish. Capturing the expression on her face is the most important part. If you have been reading my previous posts you understand why. The intensity and the passion. 


I also have to add a shadow beneath her body to “ground” the figure in the background, when it’s a plain color rather than a background scene. Otherwise the figure looks like it’s “floating” on the background.
