Your name is Ariane Kyrie-Elass...

And you have just killed your mother.

That is not yet your name, and she is not yet your mother: these will not be until the next time you reincarnate.

But the interesting thing about your power is that it enables you to see what is fated to be. Much like she is fated to be your mother next time, you are fated to be Ariane and things will be different. Before your soul returns, she will destroy you, and you will destroy her, only, you will beat her to it.

The worst part of it will be wearing her eyes, day after day. Every time you look in a mirror, you will remember that you killed Dream, and you are fated to do it again.

(WIP. Took about three hours of meticulous prodding in Photoshop.)

I love the colours and texture-- it's so hard to get good textures with digital painting. Very nicely done!

You think it's hard to get good textures while digitally painting!? That's the easy part, after I've gotten the pose and colors and all down realistically detailing up the texture is just a matter of breaking out the brushes designed for the purpose instead of doing individual little strokes. I used to have that unnaturally smooth digital skin too until I found 'pore brushes' which are really just scattered dots that let you easily add texture to skin. Either big bunches or little groups work great, but it's much faster than individually detailing things.

Likewise, the hair? Two different types of hair brushes. One is the classic 'hair brush' which is a circle shape made out of a bunch of blotches. (I actually use a less detailed version of this as my main brush.) The other one I had my doubts on when I first tested it... it SCATTERS! And it has a randomized lightness and stuff. It's basically a streaky paint stroke but it's set to follow the direction of your stroke and it scatters so you get a whole bunch of this oval scribbly stroke. Works great for quickly detailing the base of wavy hair texture and then you can just pick out details over top. I thought it was really weird until I mastered how it worked and now I wouldn't use anything else for wavy hair.

Guess "making brushes work for you" is going to be the next Photoshop tutorial I make.

Anyway, thanks. :)

Well, rendering textures bit by bit is hard, but my repertoire of photoshop tricks for adding texture is also pitiful. Please, educate me! I've been looking around for this kind of tutorial a lot recently, but I've only found a few good ones.

You'll be glad to know I'm working furiously on a "how to texture digital portraits" tutorial. It's going to be massive and I'm really only covering portraits and a bit of brief "quick tricks for laying down landscapy things that look textury without taking forever"... yeah... it is HUGE.

The short of it is "use the right tool for the job" and it includes a snazzy brush set for your convenience. Hopefully I'll be done some time this week. :D

I like to imagine a little that they work hand in hand to support each other; they're moving because they bounce off of each other, you know? Thanks!
