Elinor by aunjuli Elinor by aunjuli
Elinor

Phew, I started this yesterday, and when the time came to quit and continue writing my novel, I just had to finish this first. This is Elinor from my novel. In the book she has curly hair, but after experimenting with different hair styles, this one looked the best--simple.

Five hours of work, total. Gonna keep drawing, and try to get better.


I used photoshop brushes from =yumedust and `adonihs!

:love:

ohhh...beautiful work, miss Juli!!! I love her hair, it's so difficult to make red-tones look real, but you aced it! (This is coming from a true red head. :giggle:) :heart:

That's a really good character portrait. :heart: I especially like how you've painted her eyes. There are so expressive. I also like her nose and lips. :3 I hope you are going to paint more portraits/digital pieces in the future. :love:

Nice work! Those eyes are especially strong and well done. Looks like the technique is coming along quite nicely.
(I didn't know about the novel writing. Best of luck in that endeavour. :D )

Such nice, warm tones here, and I love the shade of blue eyes with the color of the hair. It's a face that grabs the viewer's eye :)




ps. I want my eye back!! :shakefish:

So pretty, and shiny, but in the right areas. Worst comment ever, I know. :P But it's better than my more generic comment on visual art: awesome. Which it is. Bleh *slaps self*

The fact that you managed to pin down a realistic lighting of the lips is impressive. The differences of light + shadow on the edges of the lips for example. Excellent.

You're really good at eyes =D and the hair looks soft and the colour you chose is one of my favourites in woman's hair :3
