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

You really should paint more pieces like this, y'know. Stunning details on her features and attire, especially the eye. I'm a freckle fan too, and your rendering of them gives the girl a wild, carefree air of youthful and reckless abandon. I hope that that suspicious substance is something harmless like sugar, though. :D

Przepraszam, że tak późno komentuję w ogóle, ale mój rozkład tygodnia ostatnio znowu stoi na głowie i we wszystkim mam zaległości.

Włosy oczywiście mistrzostwo i eksperyment kolorystyczny bardzo ciekawy. Bardzo podoba mi się jej twarz, szczególnie usta. No i piegi (masz na nie jakiś specjalny brush?:D ). Supienka też super, szczególnie zauroczyła mnie tasiemka u góry. No i lizaczek. Biedronki są nieco creepy (w pozytywnym sensie, rzecz jasna:) ).

I love this, however, I find something a little flat about her head, and I wish I could say why I feel that way.. but I'm not sure. :shrug:
