Jay by 16Shards Jay by 16Shards
Some practice and experimentation to try and paint/draw in a more realistic way. I had originally intended to do something more extravagant than this, but had so much trouble trying to make anything work! ^^; I recognize I don't quite have the experience or tools to do much more than this yet. But someday! Just need to learn more about anatomy and painting fur. ^^ Regardless, really happy with how this turned out, and I'd like to explore a style like this more in the future, just perhaps with more cartoony elements? I'd like to develop something that has a painterly/realistic style, but I need to figure out how to manipulate it more to create a more expressive feel. 



Program- Photoshop CC
Time- 6-7 hours (perhaps 11+ if you count the time I was beating my head against a wall <:'D figuratively of course! )
Art (c) me

It's good to start learning something in small steps, I find it easier to experiment and reflect without burning out on a picture. This does look amazing so far though, I really like how the blues stand out against the rest of the image and how the focus of the image gradually fades out from the face c:
