Self-Portrait as Henry VIII's seventh wife? This is my first pure digital rendering. Details were never completed at a more swift and efficient pace. Whether I'm going to attempt a colour version of the portrait is undecided.
Thanks Rodway In the beginning (before I lost patience ), I set out painting each pearl individually. If I had continued instead of relying on duplication and rotation, perhaps they'd be resting against the skin more authentically. I might reattempt another rendering of the bottom row of pearls in the colour version. As for colours, I will be referencing Hans Holbein's portrait of Henry VIII's fourth wife, Anne of Cleves: [link]
woah so cool. this looks almost identical to your traditional paint style. And you should totally colour it, it would be so easy and you can experiment with everysingle colourpalette in the worldd without risk. nice use of texture too.
Colour layering on greyscale, at least I find, ventures on appearing flat if not done properly. But altering the warmth of the greyscale to sepia works wonderfully with colour overlay. The visceral potential of textures amazes me and I will further explore ways on how to use them. They are a reality-driven vehicle in a painting. I was taught textures from a master, thank you
I'm sending you my number over facebook. We've tried exchanging numbers countless times before but failed! Haha. Expect a text from me on New Years too. I hope you have a beautiful evening of celebration
