Here's a realism study I painted in Photoshop CS4.

Face reference: [link] by *Reine-Haru
Hand reference: [link] by ~LuckyStock
Additional flying feathers painted without reference.

See a process time lapse video of the face here on youtube: [link]

And read [link] if you want to know more about the name in the title.

No tracing, no color picking, no photo elements or textures. I could've spent some more time on the details here but I'll just move on to the next painting I guess:)

I'm not as up on my Nordic legendry as I should be...I'd never imagined a Valkyrie looking like this. She transcends loveliness; graceful, wistful, serene, thoughtful. Utterly gorgeous, but it's the completely different slant to an image of legend that captivates me here.

This is really beautiful. The deal is amazing, though I wish there was something more in the back ground.

Thank you! Yeah, it started to be just a study of a face when testing a screen recording software. I won't change this anymore, but I can already tell you that I'll soon be working on a photorealistic portrait commission that will have more background:)

Geat practice?! You are awesome! Wow, I can't believe this's not a photograpy. It's so realistic that makes me sad...
