Hahaha. This made me so happy. Man, you are the best! I probably spend about 30 minutes every time I'm on DeviantArt just looking at your pics. It's an inspiration to me, and I thank you so much for it!
yeah i agree as well it's hard trying to get the same results obviously he's a lot more experienced and knows his way better than i do but for an aspiring artist we have too keep learning from the best
I'm sorry! I just saw this, I use a custom noise effect which tends to bring out that more photo feel for the skin. I'll have a tutorial on it soon Obviously a lot of painting goes into place as well, but the noise effect does really help.
ah nice, i asked mainly because i wasnt getting alont with the pore brush but i also figured you use it for other effects can't wait for it it will really help painting realistically which i tend to have a problem with some characters looking like made of plastic
Really love the work, although I actually preferred the piece before the addition of the all the highlights. I feel like they make the image a bit too busy and as if it's trying too hard, and detract from the incredible artwork of the rest.
Just my two cents, and take into account that I can only draw like this in my very wildest dreams!
