Oceanika by konukoii Oceanika by konukoii
This was part of an experiment with layers and shadows, that turned out quite nice. Please view large for details.

Again, wallpaper size.

Based on a picture I had downloaded on my computer years ago, sadly all I know of this picture is that at the bottom it said "AngelEyes" (if anyone has any idea of who's is the original picture please comment)

I don't think it's her. Sadly I don't know where I took the picture from, so I have no idea where to find it on the internet.

I believe this is called gradient mesh?

Yes it is. It's made by vectorizing and image, then blurring shadows and light spots, and then tweaking opacity, texture layers, gradients on skin tones, etc.
I made this one on Illustrator CS4.

Gradient mesh is very hard. Especially with human skin! Gave up on it eventually.

Yea it actually is hard, I've still got a lot to learn. (for example, let me tell you a little secret: Oceanika has sunglasses because her eyes were so freaking hard to do!) :)

BTW you might enjoy other gradient mesh works I have at the gallery ([link])

I do that too sometimes. It's the details of the face that are very hard to work on.

indeed they are, especially if the picture you are working on has heavy shadows on the head (or are black and white pics) :)
