Digital Art Faces

I am having such a good time creating digital art.  For me, it is a nice relaxing way to lose myself in creativity with no fear of mistakes. Oh, I make plenty of mistakes, but it is easy enough to erase the last few marks you made and fix it. Of course that works much better for me when I remember to use a new layer for each new element. 
I used a photo of my Mom as a starting point for this first piece. It looks enough like her that she said "Is that me?"  
The left eye is a bit off but I didn't try to fix it since I had other things on that layer. (oops, lesson learned, well sort of.) 

The next piece was based on a pen sketch that I used a while back for the Friday Face Off. 
I reworked it digitally and added color.  I really like the result. 

I am linking up with Nicole for the Friday Face Off (which at the time of this writing isn't posted yet.) 

Until Next Time,  
Stay Creative

Ohhhh these are just excellent. Your mom is so pretty. You did a great job. Thank you for joining FFO and have a great weekend.

Both pieces look great.
Oh, do I miss Photoshop. I have a program from... hold on to something... 1994, PhotoStudio.
It´s free and has not even layers. But for what I do these days it´s enough. And did I mention it´s for free...
To creativity, layers or not - have a happy Friday!

When I first glanced at the top face, I thought that looks like Gene with a wig. Yep, you can tell that is your Mom. Great work on both faces!

I'm very late for Friday Face Off, but that's how I found your post.

I'm particularly struck by that purple hat :)
