Ladybug's heart by vinegar Ladybug's heart by vinegar
Let's say it's sort of a valentine pic.. anyway, an idea I had in mind for some time. Still practising lights and colours, as you can see, I think I made some progress.

Done in Photoshop CS2, no direct refs used, though I checked some ladybugs photos and my own hand for lights.

see close up here: [link]
and some wip shots: [link]

you have no idea how much time the bloody hair and skintone on her face took me.. hope you'll like it :giggle:

oh, did I mention I love freckles? Well, I do.

However long it took is worth it in spades. She is awesome and that skin tone rules! I even love her hair and dress, so I think I have a new addition to my favs.

browsing images for ladybugs and came across this
i have to tell you... it's so awesome

my fiance passed away a few months ago... to me ladybugs have always represented those that have passed on
yet at the same time, i feel like a zombie (as pictured)
with a broken heart (kind of as pictured)

really love this...
please let me know if you ever sell prints
