Artwork Description

Kind of self portrait. At least I hope I looklike this way in this angle.

Photoshop CS + Wacom Graphire 2 tablet (A6)
Around 30-40 hours
No reference used

Yet another lesson for me to reach next painting level. Strange, this time it wasn't painful to paint without reference. I found there are only few principles which has to be respected and after understaning them it's quite easy to paint them. Somehow it gaves me an artistic freedom.

Several corrections has been made. Big thanks to the fellow members from the GFXartist who gave me thoughtful critiques

that is most impressive!. beautifull ambience, amazing considering the lack of reference. I guess your eye for photography has left an impront in your mind to fall on for illustrating Tongue. so natural and realistic!.

Art at its best.
