For a while now I wanted to paint a portrait with a sort of sad hint... I chose loneliness.

This piece has challenged me in so many ways. The amount of detail almost drove me crazy, also I have never painted an Asian, nor a child for that matter, so it took a lot, lot, lot of work.

The piece was done entirely in Painter and Photoshop. Two weeks of hard hard work.


Here are some progress shots I captured during painting the face AND the face closeup: [link]

Here are some closeups: [link]

Here are 3 refs which really helped me in the stylization: [link]

This artwork is the newest and last one I will submit in a long time to teh Deviantart community. I will probably be involved in an illustration project and will not be able to submit my artworks before the book I draw for will be published.

Anyway:
This is my probably most detailed work I have ever done.

It took my a month of non stop work, but I am pretty satisfied with the outcome.

It was a commission and the character is copyrighted to Lisa Lassiter. :)

I cannot count how many hours it took me, but well, MANY.
Everything painter, several references used and the fields on the bg are pretty manipped being honest cause I got lazy ;]

Anyway I hope you enjoy the picture, comments are always welcome!

Ps. Want a closeup? go here! [link]

I do have a story behind this painting, but instead of words, I leave you with this picture alone. I wonder what your interpretations would be :)

Original size: 6000x9000px; done from scratch in Photoshop with some aid from Painter. This piece was a challenge, mainly to get the technique and mood work together. It took me a LOT of time, especially to get all those little details right.




Here's a link to some closeups: [link]

Ahh, I hope DA will let me submit it this time! ;_;

WoW is such an awesome game :]
This is one of the works I have lost due to a harddrive burnout, so I had to draw it all over again. Well, here it is, redone
Countless amount of hours spent, original is 6600x10000px

Hope you like it! Feedback appreciated as always =)

PS. Unfortunately, due to the Printing policy, I am not able to offer this as a print through Deviantart, as I do not own the character copyright :[ Evil!

Oh, paint the white of my wedding dress grieving black
For a widow I am, not a bride!
Mourning over my youth forever buried in the depths of these tombs,
As a flower dies without a sip of dew,
I wither away without the warm breath of my beloved sun.

Well, that's an outcome of a non stop few day work. I have decided, that I need to work a LOT on the anatomy and skin shading of my characters, and so I tried, in this one, to work the hardest I can on it.
I have done a lot of studies (mainly consisting of looking at myself in a mirror ;P), tries etc before even beginning to work on this.

I cannot, unfortunately, publish a full WIP of the work, as it's going to be published soon, but I am still sharing some sketches and closeups and a tiny tutorial :)

Oh my gosh, I am submitting something not digital ;)

Anyway, I did at home yesterday and partially during Uni today...*cough* Cheers to all professors ;]


I didn't want to disappear from DA completely, and as I have no time for digital pics - Uni hours (besides the fact I need to make notes) are still free! ;)

After I am done with the illustration job, I will start my freetime drawing project called Seven Deadly Sins, and this is a character sketch for Lust. I already changed my idea on how Lust should look like, but I decided to share it with you anyway.

Eventually I will just make her some sort of a Succubus. ;)
It will stay on my main page until I submit something digital at last(sick of staring at Xull Rae as a recent dev), then I will probably move it to the Scraps section, well whatever.

Techy info:
Couple of references used (from mags I borrowed); lots of pencils, white, gray, black, red crayon used, also 2 black markers.


PS. I tried to clean up the sketch, so pardon if some parts look weird or something ;D

PS2. I didn't chec matrue content, if you think I should, please tell me in the comments, so I will edit it :)


I hope you enjoy!

I did ths picture some time ago, decided to submit it sooner, because it will take part in the Digital Artists Summit Digital Illustration Contest :) Wish me luck!

If you do not know the myth of Eros and Psyche, I propose you try this link: [link]

I hope you like it :) It was definitely the most time consuming project I ever did.

A different style, different tonation, lots of refs used, few dozen hours spent. Heavy Mucha inspirations can be spotted especially in the frame:)

Created fully in Adobe Photoshop :heart:


PS. I uploaded a slightly fixed version~

Ok DA was mean to me and fusked my account totally when I tried to upload (and then delete) this pic. Grrr.
Anyway, that's a pic I've done for an art magazine contest (and was one of the winners)...
Fully in Painter, BG(castle) ref'd. :)

EDIT: Ok, about some comments I recieved: this is NOT the image I submitted to the DA FeatureME contest ;)

Lately I have been working on a series of tutorials for IMAGINEFX by Future publishing.
This artwork was made specifically for the Gown Painting and Decorating Tutorial.

The tutorial covers the detailed process of painting the whole dress, starting with a basic sketch to coloring and decorating with lace and embroidery.

So... if you want to see how this was done, check out IMAGINEFX Issue 3! :)



The image was done in Painter 7 with some aid from Photoshop CS2 (stone textures); around a week of hard work ;)

Here's some closeups:
