Rihanna by BabyDollB Rihanna by BabyDollB
My first pastel portrait, I think I found my new favorite medium. Love this picture of Rihanna: [link] so I used it as a reference.

Done with pastels on pastel paper.

This amazing pastel portrait immediately caught my attention when I first saw the thumbnail. It is so bright and vibrant, and the texture of the pastels on the paper gives an impression of real skin. I gave this :star::star::star: for originality only because it is based on another reference.
Two more things that make this such a nice portrait:
1. The warm, but muted colors; there are so many, but they are not too bright so the effect is not too overwhelming.
2. The yellow eyeshadow; the contrast with everything around it makes the whole portrait interesting to look at.
Two things which could be better, in my opinion:
1. The lips are too detailed compared to the other features. Either make them a little more blurry, or give more detail to the other features, like the eyelashes and hair.
2. The light, whiter areas around her eye don't really fit with the rest of the color theme; it might be better if they were a warmer color.
I hope this has been helpful!
