-- I'll keep this on this old account...since it's so popular. D: I would have moved it otherwise. :lol: --

Edit: Re-painted the eyes; since they lacked detail. Added more highlights to the hair. Suggestions are still welcome! <3

Oh snap. A digital portrait. I nao - I said I wouldn't be doing any more...but I couldn't help myself. He's just so awesome. And I blame my website for this. I realised just yesterday, that most of my digital stuff is FAIL, doesn't have any WIPs, looks rushed, and generally does look quite pathetic...so I thought, 'how the hell can I put THESE on my website?'. I figured I should - instead of re-making older pieces - paint new ones. After all, there's nothing more tiresome than painting something you made a few weeks ago.

Anyhow, Hugh <3 This was incredibly fun to do...The eyes especially. <3 But they're always fun. Surprisingly enough, It felt like I'd rushed straight through this really fast - even though it's actually taken about 7 hours. :lmao: Which is slow for me...but I wanted to make sure that everything I did was right - and that I hadn't saved over any WIPs. Any suggestions?

And yes, I am frustrated. No more House until April 28th. :bucktooth:

WIPs

:giggle:! It's not that hard, really. I mean, with a tablet. A mouse is tricky work. I think if I went back to using a mouse now, I probably wouldn't be able to. D:

I think this piece is fantastic. I just have one question for you... I am taking up digital art and I was wondering how you got such a huge picture. I know you can make any picture that size, but while you're drawing it the whole canvas isn't in view so the proportions and stuff get all messed up! I'm confused!

I do a lot of the work really zoomed out. I usually make the picture as big as I possibly can on my desktop (even if sometimes, that means rotating it 90 degrees and painting sideways XD...but that's not ideal). I tend to just do that, then make it so it fits the page. I do most of my work like that, then just zoom in to particular parts of the body to add details. I guess that's why my work looks rather smudgy and fuzzy up close...It's probably easier to clean things like that up afterwards with a few more layers, or some simpler blending. <3
