Renfest Profile Pic

More portrait practice. This is based on my current profile pic on social media. It was taken at the First RI Ren Fest in 2019. I'm not too fond of the way the face came out (still need more practice on that), but I really do like the way the outfit was drawn.

Oil pastels are not too easy when you're looking to add detail. I'm finding that I need to add all the colors I want to blend and then use the blending stump to get the gradations. The glasses also added difficulty to the portrait. Right now I'm working very small - a larger picture may lend itself to having room to add the detail.
