MAD MEN - BETTY - by DanLuVisiArt MAD MEN - BETTY - by DanLuVisiArt
Here's a speed-painting/lighting study I did based off Mad Men ref, one of my top favorite shows on television. I drew the oh, so lovely, January Jones.

Took about two hours to complete.

This for some reason remands me of Fallout, the archetypes are beautifully done, maybe because the setting enviroment is in the mid 50-60s :)

So much talent. I especially love the hints of red of her nails.

This is on the cusp of passing off as an actual photograph -- that's how remarkable the attention to detail throughout it feels to me. Very nice work!

This work reminds me of the story from the book of Ayn Rand "Atlas Shrugged", the main character Dagny Taggart. Sorry for my english)

I wanna say I hate you, but that'd be petty so I won't say that.

Amazing light study, the way you caught the transparencies and different effects of light feels so natural, plus the theme is sensational. I absolutely love it

Holy shit, the lighting in this is amazing!... I'd say a study well-... studied. The surface-lighting of the lighter and the play of light in the glass are friggin' amazing as well, holy shit, I knew there was a reason I was watching you.

The detail is stunning. What caught my eye was the counter's little scratches and dings. It's so real, I feel like I'm in the room with her. ^_^
