.: lady of the swamp :. by vinegar .: lady of the swamp :. by vinegar
Took me ages to finish.. well.. 2 and a half evenings actually.. That's a lot for me..

And yes, i'm still learning realism XD Think i did quite a progress while painting this one.. at least i hope so.. it taught me lots about lights, shades and stuff..

few references used to get the proportions and stuff correct.. painted entirely in opencanvas, no photoshop brushes and tricks ^_~

well.. hope you'll like it?

i might update later with some close-up's and tutorial.. *EDIT* - [link] here it is :)

btw.. i really wanted to add some blood here.. but thought it would be just ridiculous XD

It's written in the description. I always write it in the descriptions. Although this piece is very old. Lately I'm using mostly Photoshop, sometimes Painter.

What is Jaloes?

neh, neh! Awesome picture and I found this by looking after tutorilas, lol ;P but, there is one thing... the strap doesn't go all the way to the front of her shirt. You can only see it on her back ;P just to let you know that, hihi :love:

the sky is great,
but the brush strokes on the body are too... seen, and it makes her skin look like water (aspecialy the legs). i guess they shouldn't have such highlghts.

Ah, i thought you used a tablet... Hum, did using a tablet rather than a mouse make your work better? Cuz' i have an A4 Wacom tablet and can't get it to work.
Reply
:iconvinegar:
vinegar Featured By Owner Feb 20, 2005
you mean like it\'s broken or you can\'t get used to it?

actually i used to paint with the mouse for a while and then with a tablet. I got used to it quickly. It doesn\'t change anything, it\'s just more comfortable than mouse, you have bigger control on what you\'re doing..

and, wow, wacom A4.. i\'m jealous ;) i don\'t think i\'ll be ever able to afford such thing O_O

I can't get the software onto my computer ;__; I think the disk it came with died or something...

My dad bought it for me for Christmas ^^ I'm so lucky...

vinegar Featured By Owner Feb 21, 2005
oh, you are lucky indeed ^_~

if the drivers disc doesn't work just browse the internet and search fot the drivers at wacom.com or google.com .. if it's an original tablet (and i'm sure it is) just visit wacom.com and mail or phone them :)

they'll have to send you a cd :)

Cudne. :heart: Twoje umiejetnosci i wyczucie kompozycji sa niesamowite.

Jesli moge wyrazic swoj punkt widzenia - mysle, ze gdyby pani jednak nie miala na sobie bluzki, to wygladaloby to lepiej (i nie pisze w kontekscie erotycznym! :D). Po prostu wydaje mi sie, ze Pani Bagien nie musi przejmowac sie takimi rzeczami jak ubrania. ;) I jedna z osob nade mna (bugtree) ma racje - bluzka ma pasek z tylu, na plecach, ale nie widzimy jego kontynuacji z przodu, na piersiach. No, chyba, ze paski lacza sie pod szyja pani i sa zasloniete przez ramiona. ^_^ I jeszcze jedna mala uwaga - moim zdaniem kciuk moglby byc odrobine subtelniejszy.

Przepraszam, ze tak tu marudze, ale strasznie mi sie podoba ten rysunek i przez to jakos latwiej zauwazam rzeczy, ktore mniej mi sie w nim podobaja...

this is incredible and very admirable work, i think you did a lot of progress with lighting and skintone, background depth, etc.

its very relaxing, but at same time theres a creepy atmosphere.

i would suggest some color of the sky reflexion in the water, but i still think its looks nearly perfect, so you can ignore my suggestion!

well it looks like she has a strap in the back of her shirt and it goes up to the sholder but it doesn't come down the front from the top of her sholder. at least it doesn't look like it does.
