Keely (2009)

Theres just something about a beautiful blonde girl... Been wanting to create more artwork of blondes, so this time around Im glad I got to illustrating one of my good old friends, Keely.

I actually finished her about a week ago, but then 3 days ago I flattened and downscaled the original psd file to create a version to upload online... Without thinking I saved the original file as the small version and closed the window... Clever me... but then a few minutes later after realizing the original file was all gone, I said, "Hey! no use beating myself up over it, I'll just have to upscale the small version and paint over the entire artwork to re-sharpen everything. So I got right back on it and finished it two nights later =)

Now I can proudly say that she turned out even better than she first did!

Anyway hope you like!

Wonderful, very vivid, with a hint of mystery (what is she looking at?). When I found it here: rpg-directory.com/thread-51990…, I knew I had to track the artist down. I didn't regret it :).

My beautiful, beautiful twin! You really got her steely eyes and fine facial features down. It's funny to think that she now has a tattoo on that shoulder...hehe. You rock, Warren.

Heh. After discovering the save for web feature, I almost never had to do that again. Except for monstrously big files that SFW insists on generating a 100% sized preview before allowing me to resize, then it gets obnoxiously laggy.

Great work.
