Thanks Valentine!

I'm redoing it after I wake up though. Marvel (or scoff) at the shoddy unlikeness of her portrait while you still can xD

dumping the progress thoughts here:

 

Final thoughts about this piece:
 
[9:41:19 AM] Shan: redoing her stupid face
 
holy shit i went to loving her face sooo much to . well. i wouldnt say hate, but i measured/analyzed her face so much she lost all her prettiness to me xD
 
Lessons learnt:
1) DON'T ASSUME, MEASURE EVERYTHING
2) DON'T ASSUME, STICK TO THE GIVEN COLOUR PALETTE IN REFERENCE
3) DON'T ASSUME YOU'RE EVER GOOD ENOUGH TO FREEHAND
 
Is this considered final?:
NO

My first submission and I already dropped the ball. xD

You're probably one of the only people who witnessed my growth from whatever the hell I was doing in my younger years to semi realism though! You and Valentine.

 

Dat nostalgia.

50% blood, 50%sweat, extra 10%bonus from that meh song!

I've decided to just turn this into some hipster music/art collection, hmmm. Fill it up with maybe 10 chosen songstresses and then close thread. I'd be busy by the time 2014 starts, anyway. /:

 

 

I don't think you'd like the next artist feature, too xD

Your paintings are really awesome considering that a lot of people that do it in this style end up with a really messy looking final piece, IMO. But you actually look like you know what you're doing and end up with well done stuff!

The thing I've always liked about your style is how it kinda teeters on realism. It is different and distinctive. Me loves it.

rubberrazors (sunset?) : It's still a hit and miss though. If I get lazy and start freehanding I'll always end up with creepy demi humans a la Lorde version 1. I: References are life savers~~~

 

ack: I'm attempting to learn how to doodle in a more stylized manner, ehehehehe. Anime art is still okay, but when people tell me to draw stuff in the style of Looney tunes, PPG or whatever other western cartoon I'll just die right there. Sometimes I'll watch Gorillaz animations on loop and cry in a corner. Maybe it's a foundation problem? I don't know.

 

(But yea at least I still got my 1413414 drawings of pretty ladies)

The alignment of the eyes seem a bit off to me on the third one. But tbh the third one is my favourite, and they're all really good. Well done again, Noia. Well impressed with these. I haven't done art in a long time but even back then you make me look like I was a five year old finger painting. Haha

shooooot

I'll go back to photoshop and re-measure it e_e

this is what happens whenever i deviate from my ref....

edit: levelled her eyes! Thanks for the help, Val (Can I call you Val?)  :lol:

 

and auuugh, thanks for the tip, Herc

I'M SORRY, SUNNIIII

I should just stop relying on my terrible memory and start calling you guys by your current usernames.

 

I probably won't go on hiatus, naw. But I'd probably be busy getting my bum back into a full time job. Graphics was too taxing mentally, retail was too taxing physically, administrative jobs didn't go too well either. My choosiness kinda led to quite a bit of mini scuffles with my partner, but ... but I'd be working for the rest of my life. Melancholy is a beautiful emotion to capture in art but I don't wanna stay miserable forever in some shitty job kthx :(

 

There's a plan to follow Ack and turn into some god-tier coder (so I can work as a webdesigner) but my brain melts whenever I open those coding textbooks xD

hnnngh Infinite! 

It was mind blowing, but I couldn't find the drive in myself to obtain / read up on / play through burial at sea...  :lol:

 

Also thanks, DG! There's still a long way to go for me though.

I start mine off with a circle base, then I overlay eyelids/ eyeliner after!

It doesn't really work in certain situations, but most of the time it works pretty alright as a guideline.

:lol:

 

Gonna dump my final human in here and wrap this collection upppppp. It's time I start slogging on Christmas cards.

Shat enough bricks to build a skyscraper while I was working on her hair, holy shit.
