It's me!!! =O Yes that is more or less what I look like. Not bad for only 4 months of digital painting. I'm getting better.

I made this for Roxanne74's contest- [link]
Fairy ref- This is the only stock I used as reference . No other outside references were used.
Model reference is myself.

I created some textures on the skin and background from my own resources to save time, but other than that everything else is painted by hand.

Steps and Closeups:




--------------------------------------------------------------
This is not a photo-manipulation or an over-paint. Nor was it traced. It is a digital painting painstakingly painted over the course of 2 weeks.

Adobe CS4 + Graphire Wacom tablet

holy crap.. I really liked the piece that one, but if I am truly honest I think yours should have. Certainly place higher then a tie for third, just goes to show how subjective art is. A beautiful piece,

Yeah, one thing that set mine apart was the fact that is wasn't a manipulation. But meh, in the end it's based on how cool it looks, not always how skillful you are.

How did you learn so fast? Respect for that!!!
Could you give me some tips?

I think what makes my art decent is my solid foundation in figure drawing and knowledge of how light works. It made the transition from traditional to digital much easier because I could already draw. I would say work on anatomy. Drawing portraits did wonders for me. ;)

Thanks, though it is kind of a let down to win 3rd when I didn't get anything for it, you know? And to tie for 3rd... lol. Oh well. Congrats. I knew I was in trouble the moment I saw your stuff. You have great photo manipulations skills.
