Title: Frejya painting
Post by: parallax on February 10, 2010 09:45:22 PM
I started this about a year ago. She started as a drawing, then I ended up inking it and scanning it into the computer. I had very, very limited experience with Photoshop for painting purposes and so I got a few tips from a guy I worked with and started laying color into it. I can't even tell you how many hours went into it - I would get it to a place I was somewhat happy with and then decided to push it further. At one point, I decided to do away with the lineart and that's when I feel like she really started coming together. I had to find a few tutorials on painting skin and hair.
She still needs a background, floating around in space is not quite right :P
But anyway, considering how little I knew about painting a year ago and where she is now, well I'm pretty proud of it.

I hope this works, it's linked to my dA account:

Oh wow!! Amazing work! I have the Adobe CS3 Master Collection and I would really like to learn to use it for stuff like this!
