First of all, sorry for a little delay in replying to you all , I am having some connection issues that should be fixed by tomorrow. I am at my friends place, taking advantage of his broadband ... ahh the speed
The work... Again, if it seems to dark to view properly on your screen, let me know.
This is, among other projects, the image I was workin on for the last few days. As a person that is used to making photomanipulations, even with the amount of painting I do in each of them, this was a real challenge. But a lot of fun at the same time. Its been a while since my last attempt in painting, so for this I decided to use a refernce and read couple of tuts before I started, turns out it was a smart thing to do, couse I am happy with the final result. Hair is a bit of a mess, so I will be testing couple of more techniques these days and maybe update this eventually with better hair. I am proud of the eye lol. Was always the hardest thing for me to pull off (I draw traditionally a lot too in my spare time, in fact, my first few pieces here were traditional art), but I am happy with the result here
So on the theme and concept... Black Swan, I watched it few days ago and absolutely loved it. Natalie played her part perfectly and I must say I really loved the charachter so I decided to do something related to the movie. Reference for the face can be found here - [link] And the crazy hairstyle in the photo inspired me to do the "swan from hair" concept. No refernce used for swan or wings (no internet lol) so they might seem a bit off.
This is so incredibly stunning~~ You've really caught Natalie Portman's beauty and look from the movie to such an amazing level ^_^ The effect of the black swan is really gorgeous and artistic. It feels really soft yet very much alive. Really, really love this, fantastic work~~
Gorgeous! Love the hair as well-it needed a different look to work with the swan. I am so glad I'm not the only person who has trouble with eyes. Sometimes they're fine, other times make me want to scream.
