Painting - Sailing Away by Italiener Painting - Sailing Away by Italiener
Hey buddies! Here we have a more colourful scene - perfect for the grey autumn... :-) Done in 15 hours. All done in Photoshop.

I know... the hand doesn't look very realistic but I tried my best. Believe me... :-) I hope the skin colour is okay (as most of you know I'm painting b/w normally, so I'm not that experienced in this type of painting...).

And again I'm not sure with the background. I've made a different version with a brighter bg. The light effects are better (or more realistic) but the contrasts are not that nice. Anyway, maybe tomorrow I'll replace this version - we'll see...

Hope you like it!

Cheers!
Gerri

Gerri -
I think you're being FAR too hard on yourself.  You did a great job.  I love the background - its vague, out-of-focus appearance brings all the attention to the model.  Make it brighter & it starts competing with the model for attention.  Leave it as is.  Love the dark hair & suit.

Hi there!

Take a look at my "Tutorial Portrait Painting". This could help you. Furthermore there are a lot of great speedpainting videos on youtube. There are not many tools you need in Photoshop to create a painting => Brush, Erase and Smudge (for me). Just have a look at this PDF I wrote - hope it helps you! ;-)

Tutorial Portrait Painting (PDF, 12mb): [link]

Practice with photos. They should have a very high resolution and a good contrast. Use them as a reference to understand colors, contrasts, anatomy and so on!


Best wishes
Gerri

Very photo realistic and well composed! Did you work from a single reference photo? And regarding your comments, hands can be a real pain in the a**! Keep at it though - your doing great!

Hey Kitty!

Beautiful new ID-picture! ;-) Yes I had a reference photo. But don't ask me who it is. I don't know.
I've seen this picture and I knew I would paint her. Colors, light, contrast and composition were so great - I had no choice! :D Now I'm searching for new great references but there's nothing compared to this reference image...

Hi Gerri =D

Thanks for the compliment :love: I thought I recognized the model and pose in this, but I too can't place where I have seen it. She is gorgeous though - you've really captured feminine beauty so well!

I'm not sure if that was an indirect request for permission to paint me, but if so, I'd be honored =D

Kit :heart:

Hey Kit!

No, it wasn't an indirect request. I'm too shy for something like that! :D But of course I would paint you!! ;-) The only thing I need from you is an UHQ-image (ultra high quality). I'm painting now for only 11 months and I've not the experience to paint with a low res image cause I would not be able to catch all the small but important details! So, just give me a nice portrait of you and I will try my best! Promised!! :D ;-)

Have a nice weekend! :slow:
Gerri
