In the Wind by lithriel In the Wind by lithriel
A lovely portrait. I stuck it out and did more detail this time. I purposely changed her features from the ref image, but next time I want to push the deviation further. I am amazed at how much easier this is getting.

I just love her complexion. This is one of the most beautiful portraits I've ever seen though I don't know exactly why - but I believe it's because of her features being so pretty as well as appearing totally natural. It seems like you didn't try to overdraw her beauty but still wanted to catch the perfect moment, as in a photograph.
Simply stunning!

Wow..... Great job. You are very talented!
I also see that you have done a tutorial. To me that says alot about an artist.
I am sure all artists have a few little secrets. But a good artist that shares tips with those who are learning...... shows me how much love they have for what they are doing. They want other to do well too.
And to me that is a true artist!!!!

Thank you very much! I do love what I do! Ever since I was three I knew I wanted to be an artist. I share what I can because we're all still learning no matter how much experience you have.

Fantastic! I love how subtle this piece is. I like examing pieces and then I always come up with weird 'favorite' areas, here I loove the highlight on her jaw. Lovely. The only thing that I would suggest is putting more colors on her face so the tonation of skin isn't so plain. But I'm saying that because I'm trying to master the colors on face, so XD Overall, it's beautiful.

Sort of both. I graduated from college a year and a half ago but most of my skills I developed on my own. I started seriously drawing portraits at 12 years old. In college I got a bachelors in integrated studio art where I increased my anatomy skills through figure drawing courses. I have been playing with photoshop for 8 years and I know it well, but I am just now getting into digital painting. XD
