This painting is a testament of how hard I find to paint something digitally and avoid the clean digital look. Its very hard not to overdo things. And it probably needs more work simplifying things and adding better colors. I started this on my ipad on a coffee shop.We just woke up and I thought I wanted to do a pastel-y type of sketch of my girlfriend while she read her book. 


 It started being fun and all, but soon I started to struggle , finding the right shadows and colors and most importantly , not having a good solid pencil sketch to start with really made it more difficult. I used the smudge tool a lot to avoid that clean smooth look that you normally get in digital painting. 

Here's a process video, where you can see how much struggle I went through!
