Self-Portrait by AmberDust Self-Portrait by AmberDust
A little self-portrait I started the other day. Started in Corel Painter IX.5 in black and white then went over to Photoshop to finish up and add colour. Used a few reference pictures and a mirror. XD
The resemblance is ok, but didn't want to over-refine it so I left it as is. Hoping to get more work done soon! Until then, cheerio! :)

Time Consumed: 6 or so hours

This is pretty nifty! It's an interesting technique you choose to colour it.

Very pretty. The only thing I'm wondering about would be the whites of her eyes; would they be more white than peach?

Doesn't entirely matter though. I love the coloring and shading and how you made the texture show. Loverly job.

Ha ha yeah, good point, I was using a lot of colour adjustments at that point and must've forgot to add some whiter parts there. XD Thanks very much! :)

Haha, it's fine. If you add white be careful, you don't want it to be brilliantly white. I'm sure you know though. And you're welcome.

Thanks! Realism is a difficult one to get right, I don't even think this is proper realism either lol. But with plenty of reference and giving it as many tries as you can you can quickly make a lot of improvement. :)

Yeah this thing is freakin sweet, remind me and ill make sure to feature it. Itd be really cool to see a tutorial on how you might do something like this. I am a real amature when it comes to coloring, so it would be most helpful to see your artistic process.

I don't have any tutorials planned soon (have lots of painting to do as it is XD) but it's something I'll look into eventually, thanks for the interest. :)
