portrait. by Angela-T portrait. by Angela-T
self portrait. sorta. :|

something i started working on between projects. originally it started as a quick digital study but it evolved into hyper-realism practice. i got a little lazy around the neck area so i'm not too happy about that area. and i say it's a self portrait because i used a photo of me as a reference even though the end result doesn't really have any resemblance to me at all. even so, i still might use this as a id.

oh, and i was inspired by a photo i saw a while ago. i wish i could link back to it but i can't remember where i saw it! its driving me crazy! i remember it was a portrait of a man, he was looking up (i think), lighting from above and with a vintage style wallpaper in the background. haha it wasn't anything special i just liked how it looked. and if anyone knows what i'm talking about, link me the photo cuz i'd love to see it again! haha

Its a good start! The way you shaded the nose just looks strange though. But that's just my humble opinion.

Wow! I have just began to get back into the digital art for personal use and I've been mousing the whole time so far. This is going to be my inspirational piece to study... This is a lot like the style I free hand and I love you work on this piece. Can't wait til I get a Wacom myself. Thanks for sharing.
