So Close. by pica-ae So Close. by pica-ae
Photoshop; ~4-5h

And another Digital Painting :dummy:

I am pretty happy with the outcome of this one :B

Doing this one was a lot of fun, even if my hand hurts a bit now :giggle: My steps are roughly: line art sketch / color blocking / blending / facial lines / hair / effects

When it comes to effects… I added some noise, as well as adjustments via levels and color balance. They can really help enhance the colors and make the image more vivid.

To mention: no liquify this time! :la:

And for resources… make a guess :meow: Hint: there is a mirror on my desk. ;)
[I also used this fantastic brush set by `DanLuVisiArt [link] ]

I hope you like it :peace: :heart:

Lovely details here!
I love the shiny details in the iris.
I might tone done the brow bone highlight just slightly, however.

Otherwise, stunning work! :clap:

So solls sein. Motivation um mal zu scribbeln ist da, Zeit eher weniger und momentan brauch ich erst nen neuen Schreibtisch bevor ich wirklich intentiv am PC rummalen könnte.

No liquefy ! :wow: GREAT! I thought you liquefied this! The texture are somewhat "moist" and smooth. Awesome job with this art! :clap:

I had used liquify in other paintings to correct shapes, mostly. I only used brushes for this, I can control brush pressure via my tablet pen, so I can achieve transparencies… it's mainly about constantly taking up "in between colors" and go over the edges :faint: lots of work :D

Thank you :huggle:

Ahh! That's where liquefy is most applicable. Now I know! You're welcome! :XD:

:nod: It is an easy fix if an eyelid ended up being too droopy or lips being too small. It's taking advantage of working digitally :giggle:
