Annika Headshot by Urnam-BOT Annika Headshot by Urnam-BOT
commission for ~AmberblazeSplash!

so, today, on my previous painting i received critique about my technique. a few days ago i found out about the "transfer" option on the brushes in photoshop and gave it a try! it works well in creating sort of a painted look. =D so this will be my new painting style from now on instead of having disgusting blending effects and such.

thank you for commissioning me! :hug:

Very interesting concept & design you've managed to brew up with this 'painting' style of yours. Wicked array of colors; definitely blasts off that breezy theme happening in the background. Though the scarf in general seems to have less shading than everything else. I dunno' if it's meant to be that way, but still - wonderful piece! Keep up the brilliant works of art~:thumbsup: (:

thank you so much! =) the scarf was intended to have a bit less shading but... now that i look at it, i think i would have liked it a little better if i added more shading.


haha! the things others see that i completely overlook xD;;;

This is amazing, Urny! ^^ fantastic work on the lighting, and the character looks beautiful! ouo
The transfer option definitely made this picture look amazing, and I bet that even if you didnt transfer, it would still be outstanding. Yet another fine piece of art by you! ^-^
I definitely have to give that option a try, though. :3 thanks for the tip!

:iconfatkidplz: adslfjadsifljs;ldifjasdl;fjadsafjl;kdfjafweijxmx213432 Get some numbers in there-
But oh my goodness this looks so good! :heart::heart:
It's like the other one, she's scared the daylights out of you and is now giving you the epic stare off doom, with a convenient lightning strike behind her, in pink clouds! :iconwhutplz:
I mean your backgrounds, they're so simple and attractive, yet they ever cease to surprise me. I would have never thought pink would be a great color with Annika, but I have been proved wrong!
And you've captured her personality greatly (Without a bunch of description on her ref, ick) but she's just looking at you, as if she doesn't need to explain what's about to go down, and it's just an ice cold stare!
But the lighting as well, adslfjsda :iconfryplz: And the shading, just the white, and the scarf! Something about the scarf, just like last time it's perfect.
And yeah, the big brush strokes look really soft and fluffy -tries to pet evil cat- Now let me freak out over one more thing before I go watch Lord of the Rings
The eyes. The eyes are perfect! Oh gosh, the way they get dark and stuff, ahh it's great! Along with that cute little nose!

But all in all, thank you so much! This is beautiful. And would is be okay if I used it as my avatar? (Ack, it's an old one, I'm gonna replace it anyways.) Just wondering, but this is so beautiful! Ahh, you improve too quickly! Wait for us to catch us! D:

When I'm done with the movie I'll probably come and stare at this for a few hours, :omg:

When you paint like this, do you start with a base color?
Reply

Urnam-BOT Featured By Owner Apr 14, 2013  Student Digital Artist
i usually begin with a normal base color or a darker shade of the base color, then add lighting/shading
