A portrait of a young priestess.
reference used with kind permission of Samantha Gainsford
done with Painter
thanks, still a classic in my gallery it seems
Truly amazing.... Like a traditional piece! *_*
I love her misterious gaze...
You don't know how unnerving it was for me everyone seeing the same face in the picture and me having no clue who they're talking about esspecially as the picture appeared on just another noname site and simply seemed good reference material to practice portrait drawing.
Goody! Yes, Sam is quite a popular gal... and you did catch her features very well. It's nice if the subject's told about a painting, esp. in this case since the portrait is so easily recognizable. I'd be a little unnerved if my own face suddenly appeared on the 'recently added'-page! But cheers for clearing things up.
obviously I didn't realize the popularity of the reference picture I used. Obviously I was also too good at catching the essential parts of it so everyone recognizes her... hmmm, well at least the riddle is solved and I'm just in contact with her to clear things up.
Yup, that is definitely Samantha! Even got the same necklace-thingy as on the photo reference..
That is Sam!
OH--I really like this It does have a painterly look to it. I'm very fond of her hair style--it turned out really well! The look on her face really works and there's nice detail on her ear. ^__^
Really nice portrait work here, Holger I agree with the previous comments, your digital technique looks like real painting. Keep it going!
I'd have her as my princess *any* day! ^^;
Beautiful eyes, and excellent work on the hair. A very seductive image.
oh, it's definitely good =]
If you say so. But who is Samantha Gainsford? Or in short: is that good or bad?
She looks a bit like Samantha Gainsford, doesn't she?
Her eyes are as captivating as Tarja Turunens are - simply love this one.. °-° Gruß, Birgit
Oh, she's pretty. I love her gothic look.
very nice work!!
it has a acrylic-glaze look to it, as though it were painted...
the eyes are very commanding! )
Very stark and beautiful, great job on the nose. Looks good.
She has an awesome Gothic look Holger, and a very gripping expression. Beautiful.
