(So I ended up not coloring the headphones; objects are a chore to me; I cheated and used a photo XD)

Wow, this one took me freakin' DAYS. Even with the new tablet (100,000 times more awesome than my old one), this took way too long to complete. I deply admire the people who does this on a daily basis, specially those who complete pieces such as this in a matter of hours.
I used a picture of Hayden Panettiere as a starting point; doesn't look much like her though ^^;;;

This is really really good :) I actually think this looks like Hayden Panettiere, because when I clicked on it I wanted to see if you'd used a picture of her as a starting point, so... yeah. This is pretty awesome.

Thank you! (and hi!)
I don't do much of this type of art (they take too long), so when I do, I'm glad if they're appreciated.

It's detailing, detailing, detailing, until the result is no less than awesome. It's really very painful in the rump area, mostly XD
It's quite literally, a pain in the butt.

Well you could do it too! The technique itself is pretty easy. Just get a comfy cushion, though.

You think? I was so worried when I was finishing this and realized it didn't really look like my reference.

Mazzi294 Featured By Owner Aug 17, 2008  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
I do, i could see it was her before i read your comments :-) I like it.
I find though that i often think my work doesn't look like the reference, which i get really depressed about. Maybe it's because you look at the image for so long you become unsure? Then again i'm very critical of my work :D

:iconclaudiall:
claudiall Featured By Owner Aug 17, 2008  Professional Interface Designer
That could be the reason, too. I did look at the ref image for hours and hours while doing this. Even now I look at the photo and just don't see it, lol

It does look like her! I can never use reffs, they always look weird. I really admire your talent with digital coloring, it's so well done and not just blended together *_*

I found out I could actually use blending without making it look crappy, if I used a loose, base skin layer and a truckload of hours sitting on my butt, painting, smudging and retouching, lol

I am soooo jealous by the rediculously vast amounts of talent you have! I've been just tring to put together a comic sketch thing, and it's taking me forever and still not working out and in probably a lot less time you do this and it looks fantastic. This is beautiful, beautiful work. Once again, I must commend you.

Never fall for the classic blunders. The most famous is, "Never get involved in a bandwar in Mordland," but only slightly less known is this: "Never go in against Ofdensen when Deth is on the line."

Well thank you. But it does take time for me to do stuff like this, honest! I know artists who do this all day and are much quicker to produce much better pieces. I guess it's just a matter of us lacking practice, heh-heh (I´m really lazy that way...)

Ha, in your case it may bes a matter of lacking practice, in mine it's a matter of lacking talents. Aesthtic arts isn't my areas of expertise. :) No matter how much time it takes you to do this, it's a lot quicker than me... mainly because I most likely wouldn'ts be ables ot pulls it off. ^_^

Maybe try some tutorials? I know, I know. I already drew a lot before I did this piece, but I found a great technique for colouring the skin that made work so much lighter (it was still a pain, but skin had always been a problem for me, until I tried this technique)

Yeah, no, I don't think there are tutorials on how to read tutorials. I was just being overly optimistic. But I have found some pretty dumb tutorials before. For doing like, obvious stuff.

Well, it's harder to get people to Fav stuff, specially since I don't have a big body of work like this one and I'm not a popular artist. I'm just glad people are looking at it, that's enough for me.

Well, yeah I guess, if you've spent many hours working on something, it kinda stings (specially when my most popular works are crappy ieces I did in very litle time)
Fortunately, I don't plan to build a career based on illustration.
