Counter clockwise by henning Counter clockwise by henning
Iíve been working on this piece on and off for quite a while because of extra projects, and when I finally got a couple of days in-between things, I decided to wrap this piece up so that I can fully focus on my other projects for the upcoming weeks. I had some other plans for this piece to start off with, but it didnít work out as I hoped as I would have to move away from the monochromatic look, which I kind of like.

Reference used for the girl.
Painted during 5-6 evenings in Photoshop CS2 with a Wacom Intuos tablet.

AH, I thought I know your work from somewhere (=>cg). Great portfolio by the way. I don't know why, but for some reason I keep starring at her but. I'm not a butexpert, but there is something strange about the butline (don't know the word, i mean the line between the butcheeks). But that doesn't matter, the picture is great done, I couldn't do better. Also I read by your comments that you have a tutorial, which I didn't found yet.... so where did you hide it?

Greetings Leonie

One of my favorites. I like the concept. She seems so peaceful and at the same time looks as if she is plotting something in a daydream-like manner.

The leg is quite right according to the reference photo, but this proves that some times following a reference too closely is a bad thing, heh. No plug ins, just brushes.

Stunning, beautifully composed.


Lovers leave and the heat remains,
Cool concentration on quarried tile,
Spells spun to ease the pains,
Fading light cast against her frame,
Circles done and still in her veins.


Shrug just a first impression.

Will.

Impressive.

For a second there, upon first glance, I thought the picture was a photo. You did a marvelous job with her face.

I really like how you used light, especially how that plays out with the shadow on her torso.

Just a small note, but it looks as if her legs are slightly offscale (they seem a bit too short for her body). Besides that, everything else is perfect.

Looks like a difficult angle to paint in, but you did great. I like your choice of colors, looks very cold and realistic!
