Greenhaired elf woman by SpoonfishLee Greenhaired elf woman by SpoonfishLee
A project focused on skin practice.  I used two brushes for this one: Hard Round brush (with pressure) and a small pencil-like brush for individual hairs and small hue changes. They're both in my downloadable set here at deviantArt :)

Timelapse video: www.youtube.com/watch?v=tNsfOB…

Enjoy! :la:

Honestly my favorite piece of art, ever. This is amazing and gives me new ideas each time I look at it. Simple, yet beautiful.

Really well done Lee! The skin looks great! :D It's really cool how the small amounts of green in the face makes it look like her veins; nice touch. ;)

I'm surprised that no one commented about this (and realize it's a little weird I do), but NICE NOSE! I mean, we often see elves with sharp and pointy noses, this rounded nose really caught my attention (in a good way). Also the colors are great. Drag0n-Princess is right, these details like skin under the hair are not only uncommon, but also adds a lot to the painting, giving us a sense of extra volume and perspective to the hair. Great job!

Wow, that's a great compliment, thanks :)

There's a person here on dA who's nose I took inspiration from!

thinking about, :icondragon-princess: is quite right about it being rare to see the skin under the hair, it makes it a little more realistic that way, good adition :D

what are those colorful spheres under her hair?

Heh, thanks :)

Just some ornament! I had my color palette there at first, but then I turned it into a part of the painting, as seen in the video xD

I really like a lot how you insert skin under the hair, that is rarely seen in paintings lately :/

Hey there.

As always you did a really nice job. I like it.
The two brown dots disturb me a bit but won't make me like this painting less.

Keep it up :3.

*Switching to the speedpainting =D!!!

Hey, thanks :)

Heh! I really like when sharp details like that appear in an otherwise abstract mix of color, though (hues of the skin). Like a bird against the sky!

Thanks, you too :la:

Heh :) I was never "gone", just busy! I'll try to get more up from January and onward. I'll be working then, and that's less time consuming than school!

Thanks a lot :la:
