Megan Ewing by BikerScout Megan Ewing by BikerScout
This portrait of Megan, a former Guess Jeans model, was painted for ~Eternities-End as part of the Sketch Challenge that I ran in 2006.

Chuffed with the final result of this - possibly the nearest to photorealism I've gotten. Especially pleased with the hair and sunglasses. :aww:

No fancy brushes or plug-ins were used - just the default brushes and tools.

:bulletred: Photoshop CS2 + Wacom
:bulletred: 6-7 hours work
:bulletred: 2400 x 3000 @ 300ppi = 49MB

PLEASE NOTE: This was created as a gift for another deviant and not as a paid commission, therefore I have ticked the 'Critique not desired' box.

it's really really great.
I learnt a lot from it.
And I didn't do very bad for my first try at digital painting (while copying this image).

This post seems old, but if you are still active on deviantArt, can I post the one I made?

Sure, go ahead. This is an old piece, you're right. But if you check out my gallery, you'll see I'm still producing art every day. :)

Yeah. I checked. Actually you and your wonderful art are the ones that inspired me to this world of digital painting.
Your art is so photorealistic that even on 100th look I cannot tell if it is a photo or a painting. Keep up the amazing work :)

This is Beautiful! The skin the hair the jewelery, the glasses, her eyes. You did a nice job on the teeth too. Teeth are hard to paint. It really does look like a photo.

Which CS brushes do you use fir skin?

Thanks - I'm glad you like it. :thanks:

I use the standard PhotoShop brushes rather than custom ones. I have a Tutorials section in my gallery. This one deals with painting skin texture. Hope it helps. :)
