Wake up. by alicexz Wake up. by alicexz

PRINT AVAILABLE


"You don't know what he says to me in private.... maybe it is love - as much as it can be, for somebody–"
"–who sold you to Humble Pie for fifty bucks and a case of beer?! I was there. I was there! ...I'm sorry."
"...What kind of beer?"
Penny Lane from the saddest scene in Almost Famous: www.youtube.com/watch?v=W7SqlV… The moment she became a real girl.

Practice. Re-do of an old piece of mine fav.me/d3bmkqq interesting to see what I've learned and improved on in a year. (What I've learned is curly hair is and always will be a bitch to draw.) Painted in Adobe Photoshop in many hours.

You did exceptionally well on the curly hair, I'd say. Looks really awesome.

What brushes did you use to get this painting effect?

This is gorgeous- a huge improvement on the first one. I think you did the hair much better here, and the face looks more realistically 'bitter-sweet' or 'happy-sad' in this one as well. The lines are also more distinct on the face- things such as the shadows and lips and everything.
Overall, they're both gorgeous :)
