Process: Erase Her Portrait

Instead of drawing shapes to fill, I chiseled away color with an eraser.  It kind of looks like dirt on my face.  There is some dimension there.  I think I went about it all wrong, though.  I have an idea of how to do it better next time.  I’ll layer digital paint with different opacites instead of layering solid layers with different negative space markings from eraser that end up getting filled back in because of the other layers.  I’ll need another face, or at least another expression.  This one is tapped out.

Here’s a video of the layers:

Here are some stills:
