This is one of the finished products (https://www.weasyl.com/~tamponstrings/submissions/1673133/loving-memory-finished) and I really like that I captured a really warm, memory being replayed in this guy's mind. I messed with the blur things in photoshop and got a good outcome. It really forces your eye to meet his, and I really like that. I feel like there is a circle your eye gets carried through. The other one is posted to give credit for all the work I didn't have to do if I knew I was going to blur lol.

LET ME KNOW WHAT YOU THINK OF THE DIFFERENT EDITS

Hi there! Just started my online career here so to start it off I've decided to do a sketch a day to build up a portfolio and my skills. Should you have an idea for one of the daily sketches, let me know! The extra help will be well appreciated!

    That's wonderful. Looks a bit like something out of the mind of Jim Henson.
    I think, given the darker color scheme at the base, the blurring isn't really needed to draw the eye to the face. For what it's worth, anyhow.

      I don't know much about his work besides the muppets I'm afraid, but I enjoyed them :) I thought the same thing about the darker color, but my personal favorite artist right now is Aaron Blaise, and alot of his work uses the blur tool, so I figured I would try it out.
