Portrait of Danielle

It has been a while since I have done any portraits, so I decided to do something fun. I am doing portraits of my wife and kids (I will do a self portrait as well). To make it fun I am looking for references of them making silly or unusual faces. I really want to find expressions that show a part of each person that really speaks to who they really are.

The first portrait I have done is of my lovely wife Danielle. I found a great reference and I am really happy with the result so far. I went ahead and pieced together some screenshots of the piece as I worked on it.

It was painted in Manga Studio on my Surface tablet.
