    she looks extremely old
    like you're kissing your grandma

    It is said that every line on the face (in a portrait) adds to the subject's age--this is doubly so when drawing ladies and babies (and bubby ladies).

    I think exercising a little more subtly with the laugh-lines around the nose and the chin lines will solve that issue.

    You realize there's a chance that you just insulted his wife, right?

    Maybe he's spot-on, maybe she really is an older woman with a slightly large chin.

    I don't think she looks that old. Her hand does look a bit weird, NZ.

    Grats, by the way.

    I think it looks good. The parting of the fingers brings perfect attention to the ring and support of westcoast rappers.

    no she's not old, it's just me trying to execute an angle that was weird. i didn't think it looked that bad! damn you guys are harsh! i can touch up those elements in PS though. thanks for pointing them out.
    Any gang sign was not intended, the hand was put in as Mars noted to show the ring.
    thank you guys for the input.

    But she does support Westcoasts rappers, right?
    It looks good, don't get discouraged. The overall line quality is money. With the touch ups in PS it'll be a great announcement card.

    Sir, these are very important questions to ask before you consider marrying a woman! Nobody likes a marriage built on falsehoods and Biggie Smalls.

    (I don't want to jack your thread at all, but I really wanted to show off the art Mully did for my save the date cards.)

    we also made it into a puzzle, as "puzzle pieces" are a part of the visual theme for the wedding... it's symbolic for how we fit together so nice blah blah blah hey fuck you it's romantic, okay?

    I think it was http://www.portraitpuzzles.com/, but there's a lot of places that do it. Just search on custom puzzle in google

    if you're in canada, avoid london drugs for custom puzzles
    i have had 2 done - both times they were blurry and .. ugh, just.. ugh
    and they won't do anything about it, either
