I thought I'd stick the photo of my Tom Ellis watercolour into PS and see how it might look if I was to work on it some more. I overlaid the reference photo I'd used and discovered all the proportions were actually ok, apart from I'd made his face too wide. So of course I couldn't resist fiddling. Once I'd done that I got rid of the reference and tried enhancing the drawing with some linework and shading.
This is the result.
And now I have a dilemma. I'm running out of time with Bear Necessities to paint before Tuesday, and much as I'd like to have a go at the actual watercolour, I kind of like this version too. Plus I have no idea if I can get the watercolour version to look halfway decent. So - do I give up on the real painting and just print this out and take it to get it signed?
For those interested, this is the reference pic.
