Corinne's Digital Paintings
Hello! Below is small collection of my completed digital paintings. I'd love some feedback on how I'm doing.
Hyper-realistic painting done in '12. I did this for a college project but I'd love to do more of these.
Entertainment studies done in late '13
Will Graham & Nightmare Stag from Hannibal
Richard III from The White Queen
Cindi Mayweather/Janelle Monae
A little more original work but references were used
Sansa Stark, Dec '13
This one was created for a friend who wanted superhero like portraits of her relatives. Body references were used. I feel like I need to work on this a little further.

Man I wanna eat that chocolate! Great job. You have an excellent ability to render from reference. How's your work from imagination?

Oh and if you want to watch me paint live I recently got introduced to this thing called picarto TV... It's nice to do art and share it - if you have any questions it's great to talk too! I'm painting pretty much 12 hours a day so you'll most likely find me - unless I'm eating
The Following User Says Thank You to Kelvin Liew For This Useful Post:
Thanks so much! Yes, I meant for it to be as enticing as possible.
As far as completely original work, not where I'd like it to be, honestly. I sketch here and there but I haven't stepped into a full blown digital painting. I'm doing studies when I can so I have the mental references to work from imagination. Got any tips to get started? Just do it? Maybe start with a simple idea?
Stop wasting your time on copying pictures! Instead, study the real thing. Set up a simple still life, shadow box, single light source, and paint it...
I have done plenty of life studies but it's been awhile. It's something I need to do regularly, I think. Thanks for the reminder!
To me it's obvious what is copied and what is your real work (the bodies of your friends and the clothing of the pirate are completely different compared to the first few)
Are the first few paintovers or did you do them completely yourself? If they are paintovers, they're not real representations of what you are capable of, and shouldn't be in your portfolio
Thanks Livoshka! Anatomy is something I definitely need to improve so I'm working on that.
Regarding your question, what exactly is a paintover? I've seen it mentioned here. Is it painting on top of the original reference? I just placed the original beside my canvas and worked by observation.

I've looked up the images you've used and I find it hard to believe you've been able to make it so exact without either tracing or painting over
I'm not insulting you, I just think it's deceptive to do that, considering it isn't really reflective of your current skill level
It's fine. I understand what you're saying. I don't trace - it's something I've been against ever since formally studying art. I've always been taught careful observation, measuring and all that so that's how I work. I did use the eyedropper tool for the entertainment studies but have since stopped using that and do my own color mixing.
Well, it's really time to start working on my own original stuff! Thanks again.
