*EDIT - I updated the painting with a slightly better background *

Even though I've done a lot of work lately, my muse has been gone for the past 6 months, and it finally felt nice doing some personal painting again.

This is basically just something I've been playing around with for the past 2 evenings, with no plans what so ever. I also decided to leave it as grey-scale as I kind of like it this way. It was great fun trying to make it appear as if she had wet skin and hair; it doesn't require as much details as you might think :cowboy:

Painted from scratch using Photoshop CS2 and a Wacom Intuos 2 tablet.
I looked at misc personal ref photos as reference for the chick.

I love this particular painting for many reasons and the first reaction is to a kind off science fiction babe although she's only wearing a bra, panties and stockings, you know she's tough because she's in boots and has a gun!
Wouldn't mind seeing what it looks like in colour, but it is wonderful like this.

Seems like everything I see these days reminds me of a song. This particular one makes me think of "BYOB" by SOAD.

Hehe. Anyways, great gallery you've got. Truly talented.

If you would see the high res version, you'd see that it's pretty rough up close, hehe. That's the good thing about scaling things down for web usage :-P

No, I made this in grey-scale only, but did something with colour specifically for the IFX article only :-)

I love this; everything from the translucence of her hair and body to the really sensitive details of light and pattern on the gun, clothes and boots. One thing though: how would she move properly with the little chain thing holding her stockings together?

But otherwise awesome! ^^

Ah, I see it as well now. That thing between her stockings are just some rocks in the background looking like some kind of chain, hehe.

Thanks for your comments :-)

Excellent picture. The only problem I see is the woman doesn't really look like she belongs in her environment. Perhaps try blurring around her legs a bit and smoothing over some rough edges.

I apologize for being the barer of bad news, but there is one thing about this picture that really detracts from the artwork of the woman. The ground seems to be a completely different resolution. It seems like there is a blurred and distorted ground under this beautiful painting. It reminds me of the old video games when 3D first came out. They would sometimes have decent graphics, but sometimes they used low resolution textures for the ground it this is what it reminds me of.

If you could release a version of this where she is alone, with a simple background this would be an instant favorite with no question about it.

This is my own opinion and I still love the artwork. Just thought I had to share my critique.

Hi, I appreciate the feedback. I didn't have a background at all, and I threw this thing together faaaar too fast. I think that I will update it shortly, as it was bugging me as well. Now I got it confirmed, haha :-D
