Painting Practice: Elf Maiden Face With Light Rays

I’m switching over to character design practice for a while now (starting off with female faces).

In this one I wanted to learn how be a bit more dramatic with lighting, hence the shaft of light on her face.

Line sketch: GirlFace1

Blocking in colours: GirlFace2

Changed my mind about the colours: GirlFace3

Adding in more detail and changing the hairstyle: GirlFace4

Adding in the shaft of light: GirlFace7

Her mouth looks a bit odd to me so I think I might hunt down some mouth drawing exercises.
