Work in progress: [link] [link]
The extensive masking didn't allow me to scan any further, and I took it all off nearly at the end.
medium W&N watercolours, colourful inks for lineart, serious amount of masking fluid for the broken glass effect, a bit of salt.
Required equal amount of drawing and painting, hence the 'mixed media' category.
stock: [link] this is one of my own. I'm not very good at realistic drawing. I get distracted easily and end up not paying much attention to what it should look like. It's safe to say the creation here is based on the photo. I fucked it up on so many levels it's actually kind of hard to look at.
I have a bit of constructive criticism, though, the angle of the head seems off. And by that I mean it feels like you used photoshop, grabbed the chin, and dragged it to the left a little bit. I feel like it should be more to the right, directly underneath the nose.
You're so great at painting hair.
Someone told me once it's called 'negative space'. Always happy to learn new artist's term
Back in 2005 I made one of your works as favourite, and you asked me for some artwork... well, I've just released one ^^
Oh wow, did I really! You must have excellent memory, OR you haven't been around for 7 years. Either way, glad you're still here. I just saw your 2 works. It's finally time to say 'welcome to deviantART'
Really neat to see the stages to the finished
The broken glass is great and her hair too
Good one to
