I tried to draw Don Corleone with his face shadows...in the end he was a panda.

She is beautiful! It's very inspiring! She makes me think about Daenerys Targaryen in Game of Thrones because of her silver hair.

Oh yeah! I haven't thought about that but it's true :D I hadn't seen or read game of thrones when I made this but it would be fun to remake it a bit to get her violet eyes in there and just have it be her!

This is an interesting concept; the face is clouded yet the hair and forehead are lighter. It almost looks like a mixed mood, or maybe an illuminating essence. :+favlove:

This is a purely digital piece made in photoshop. I do use a lot of texture photos though to get a rough traditional look and feel to it.

The truth is I like most of your work.
But i must recognize that "memories like sand" is my favorite :D

Like i wrote in one of my comment on your Deviant profile, you're gifted.
The fact is unlike others artists i saw here, you succeed in giving a soul to your artworks.
And, imho, it's rare to see this kind of style in digital art today!
Many works seems so cold, artificial and souless :(

Do you work with the Adode CS softs?

Wow, thank you! That means a lot to hear. I rarely think much about my own style of art, it's the only thing I can do. I've never managed to step away from it much it's just how things turn out for me I guess. :) I do use photoshop while coloring but most work I create today are made with pencil on paper first to achieve that raw, more traditional look.

You're welcome ^^

I think I understand what you want to say when you wrote " it's just how things turn out for me "
I never know where my artworks will lead me when i draw them (even if I have a raw idea of what I want to do). I just follow the mood of the moment.
But I think it's important to keep an eye on the way our own style goes on.
For example I kept some of my first drawing on a sketchbook (even the worst of them :fear:), thus I can see how my art has evolved in a whole timeline.

My works are made with pencil on paper too. I use Photoshop and Illustrator to colorize them although I'm not very at ease with the coloring process (I prefer B&W). Most of the time I just erase some irregularities within the drawing, or adjust the curves and add some effects...

Coloring is difficult and it can take a long time before if feels comfortable. I've been coloring my art in photoshop since I was 14, I started off using a mouse and had no idea what I was doing but I've gradually learned how to use new tools and made the process into what I'm comfortable with. Look at tutorials and such, but don't listen too much what other people way. There are no rules to art. ^__^

I've already try some tutorials,very well explained but, how to say that… I'm just bad with colors :dead:

And, yes, no rules to art but inspirations :meditation:
