/dusts this account/ gosh it's been quite some time since i did realism (a year) or posted polished artwork on here (four months?) hello all! i actually haven't seen spectre or skyfall yet, but i fell in love with Q's gorgeous, gorgeous curly hair and his snarky demeanor and the 00Q fanfiction on AO3 were too brilliant for me to resist and bae decided to watch spectre without me a couple days ago and i was jealous as fuck so UHHH have my poorly painted excuse of Q --- mm really not sure if i did him and his hair justice, really, but idk ((o(●´皿｀●; )o))
there's still two more studies i want to do of Q, so i'll probably update this deviation with the additional studies in the future if i do get around to drawing them /lops off hands
OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOoohhhhhhhhhhhhhh this is amazing! FInally I get to see your work again The picture is perfect, the pattern on the wall is gorgeous, and the color palette are nice ^^ Btw,, what brush did you use to color the wall?
aha thank you so much! ;; it's been a long time since i also did realism in general too so i'm glad you like it hhhhh i'm probably going to do two more portrait studies of Q so here's hoping to see some improvement /orz
RE: wall, i used SAI's fine flat brush setting and just scratched where i felt it'd look nice c: i also use that setting for when i draw grass and/or other foliage when i'm lazy. hope that helps!
Aahh thank you I see... awee I'll search for it then. The problem is sometimes when I look at the brush preview I think this is the one but when I use it, everything is ruined lol I guess it's not about the brush... it's just the skill asdfghjkl
I KNOW RIGHT HE'S TOO GOOD FOR THIS WORLD, TOO PURE /DRY SOBS/
and thank you so much for the kind words! ; o ; i'm not really sure if i really captured the essence when he gives that smirk at bond at the gallery but i'm glad you like it! adjfhhh tbh painting his hair was my favourite part, although it doesn't look realistic ^^" (shhh there's nothing to be jealous of b/c i don't rlly paint realistically often in general hh)
For someone who does not often draw realism, especially so only three times a year, I cannot stress enough that this is wonderful work. There are a few things I could mention in drawing realism that you missed here (I may later give you a critique on this to fully dissect A Study in Q), and I know it is difficult to draw in the genre of photorealistic artwork, but this is far better than I could ever have attempted.
thank you for the kind words, shadow (and for watching me stream a significant portion of this piece) ; o ; i still don't feel like the finished artwork looks fully like Q even though it's gone a long way since the first screenshot WIP i took of it (perhaps you might see a few places that would help bring out ben whishaw?), but it made my day when i woke up from a nap to read this, so thank you again!
definitely am looking forward to your critique, if you do decide to write one! i'm sure you'd do fine if/when you try your hand at photorealistic artwork.
You are very welcome!, I am glad I had the chance to join in on the rather hilarious livestream. I am also very delighted that it made your day to see my comment, so that made my evening, and thus again you are very welcome. It would be my first critique, by the way, if I do so.
I did have my hand at drawing photorealistic artwork in one of my universitys introductory drawing classes -- it looked absolutely nothing like the photograph (we had to draw self-portraits from a photograph we took of ourselves).
