My new one. I'm still cleaning it up. Would like some crits before I wrap it up. Thanks. Photoshop and Wacom.

Looks great! A bit of either yellow or electric blue as if coming from below wold bring out the vamp. Let me know if it works.

R.M. I worked a little more on it thinking of your advice. I didn't want to bring in another light source from below because I think I already have confused the composition with my central lighting. I did add some highlights and grayed down yellows to bring it out more. I hope it helped. Thanks.

Great concept and execution!! I think the lighting change was a good move. The lighting in the first one made her head appear to be a little small for the body. It doesn't read that way with the new lighting.

I like this lots :D
I'm v. impressed that you've made the picture so dark and yet so bright. You've struck a fine balance between the two. Love those colours :D

I am a graphic art student @LVAI, and use photoshop everyday, what is
WACOM, and HOW!!
It looks like a real painting!
Have you tried printing the images out and then painting directly on the print?
How long did this VERY COOL image take to complete?

Thanks, it took about 20 hours of actual work and a few more of figuring it all out. This image is still irksome to me in a few areas which were pointed out here and elsewhere. But it was more complex than anything else I'd done so I figured I'd have a few extra mistakes to learn from! ;)

I don't set out for a traditional painting look, but I do use traditional techniques to get there, from sketching in the subjects to layering on the "paint". Photoshop (and Painter) seems to accomodate many painting styles. I love it! :)

I've printed them but never painted over a print. Don't see much fun in that. :confused:
