This is great! I love the details on the lollipop, and the skin tones you created. Amazing job, it looks very lifelike. :heart:

Hi, N0rks.
I did this piece about five years ago and it’s still one of my favorites. At the time I was trying some painting techniques and experimenting to figure out what worked for me in this realistic style. In this particular case, I also used a pretty good reference photo. So, I would have to be a lousy artist to screw it up badly. :D
N0rks's avatar
Good reference photos are sometimes half the work, right? ;) Although they always make me feel extra bad when I do screw up. :lol:
odeusum's avatar
Yup, a good reference makes the work a bit easier, but you still have to actually DO the work. ;)
N0rks's avatar
Unfortunately, yes. And having an amazing reference raises the stakes because you want to do it justice. :)

Fiquei vidrada nesta imagem desde que a vi no teu blog... *o*

Muito realista, parece que tem movimento :)

Beijo*

Podes descobrir as diferenças entre a pintura e a referência. :D

Aqui as pestanas estão mais definidas, tal como o cabelo e as mãos... de resto está tudo igual, apenas mais "brilhante" ^^
odeusum's avatar
Tem de haver algumas variações, mesmo que subtis. Senão, qual a finalidade artística? ;)
Alinex29's avatar
Concordo plenamente! Tu é que me desafiaste a fazer comparações XD

Mas ambos são excelentes peças, cada um na sua categoria ;)
odeusum's avatar
Nem uma fotocópia é exactamente igual ao original. ;)
Alinex29's avatar
Correto, é menos definida ;)
odeusum's avatar
Em última análise, uma coisa não pode ser exactamente igual a outra pois seria, de certa forma, a mesma coisa. E como uma coisa não pode ser duas ao mesmo tempo... a menos que alguém saiba de nova informação que redefina as leis da Física e afins... pum! :D

odeusum's avatar
One of my faves. Later, I´ll replace it for the highres. (and have to find the place where I got the photo ref to link it here... my bad :D )

This is an amazing digital drawing <3 the detail is perfect, so much so that I actually thought this was a photograph.
odeusum's avatar
Well, I must say that you're not the first one whose eyes are fooled by this image. Sadly, this is just a low resolution copy which I uploaded by mistake. I have to replace it later on. I'm glad you liked it, though. :)
