    DS-Tan WIP

    This is my attempt to make a flat anime figure turn into something 3d. I'm using the DS-Tan as my subject (Unfortunately, I don't know who was the artist that drew her):

    There goes another practice, this time a male portrait. If anyone want to see the likeness, look for Lee Kuan Yew on Google.

    Nice start so far. I like your anime characters as well as your pinups, the way you handled the color on them. Keep it up! Let's see more!

    k2mountain, Mila, Jesus Food, Leroy Oosterling, AliceA, Marco, marcotronic, kvalliant, iCreate: Thanks guys, I'm really happy with your feedback. I always post my steps because when I started on digital painting, some years ago, I realized how useful they are for begginers. Some steps I caught on the web clarify a lot of things to me, and now, I try to make my part, leting everybody knows how I did.

    @AliceA: If you don't understand the steps, feel free to ask, it will be a pleasure to help.

    More to come this week guys, hope not to disapoint you.

    Your portraits are awesome! And you've got a great understanding of light and colors in you paintings. And those step by step drawings are extremely valuable.

    How long are you painting/drawing, may I ask?

    Yeah, I'll just echo everyone else here. Very nice work, and it's cool to see the progression. I love Carrie Ann Moss, so you had me at post #2.

    Thanks for the comments, fellows, I feel really happy with them.
    @MrMagic: I draw since I was a child, it's almost 30 years. Painting I've been doing since I was 18, I think. I used to paint with gouache and acrylics on paper. But since 2004, I've been doing just digital painting, it's much more easy and efficient in my opinion.

    Before I finish the blonde girl, I had a break to make my hommage to the awesome movie Black Swan. I watched yeasterday, and it hit my soul deeply. Natalie Portman it's brilliant, and I hope this movie receive all prizes it deserves. It's a masterpiece, in my opinion.

    Thanks, Velocity.

    I know I could refine it more.. but I think it's good enough. This is the final.
