I started working on this portrait on Friday. I would say I put in about 35 hours total into this. I have been unintentionally focusing on portraits for about a year now. As a result of this I have been thinking a lot about trying to create a sort of “non-standard” portrait. One that gives a sense of portrait with hopefully a bit more. I suppose in the end that is the point of a portrait in the first place. Am I doing anything new? Probably not. I am learning a lot of new things though.
