Wow. Just wow. This is fantastic. Utterly and absolutely fantastico.

a.) you blend sking tone amazingly. It's scary good.

b.) Hair: needs a little bit more texture in my taste, but epic in its own way, as well.

c.) expression is wistful, perfect in fact, leaves a lot to the imagination in a very, very good way.

Overall, this is really quite fantastically done, and it caught my eye as I was cruising down less admirable, shabby little bits of art that really didn't have the same impression upon me as the did. Congrats: this is utterly amazing. God. Amazing...

A sensitive portrait! I like how the blue of the background is reflected subtly on the skin.

It's good to be seeing all the new stuff in your gallery. I would love to be as prolific as you are.

Been working on a few new pieces lately, though rather slowly. The 'research' part tends to take way longer than the drawing and painting, at least for me, lol. :-)

I'm glad someone's happy to see it! (It's funny, I feel like I haven't been nearly as productive this year in terms of art... I suppose I've done more than I assumed.)

The trade off for me is that I don't do a ton of research- most of the artworks I do (or, at least the ones that aren't for school or commissions) are really glorified doodles. Generally they're (stress inspired) sketches that I liked and wanted to elaborate on, and a few hours later, I realize it's 3am and I have a somewhat finished work... so I shrug and post it. I really should work on doing more research, maybe then I could get the intellectual depth your works have.

How much time to you spend researching and painting? I always wonder how long it takes other artists.

It's embarrassing for me to admit how much time I spend on a single illustration ;-) I tend to rework things multiple times over a period of time in response to critiques, so the total time spent can really add up. About 60% to 90% of the time is spent on research, general reading on the cultural group depicted, shooting photos, doing study sketches etc and the remaining 40% to 10% of the time on drawing/painting.

If it is a subject /genre that I am unfamiliar with and never worked with before, it may take me weeks.

If the illustration is something simple without need for research or lots of refs (I rarely do those for personal work), then maybe it takes me half a day to a couple of days, depending on level of detail, size etc.

What about you? How long do you generally take for your paintings, if you don't mind me asking?

Aww it shouldn't be embarrassing! Sometimes things take as long as they need to. One of my favorite pieces on this site ( [link] ) took a few years (granted, the artist claimed she worked on it on and off, but look at the result, it's astounding!)So no worries there ;)

Wow, that's actually really inspiring. I hope one day I can have that dedication to researching a piece...

Hmm.. how long it takes me varies, but I usually lack the patience to work on anything past a few days. The most recent work I did ([link]) took me a few hours (probably 2-3 each day over about 3 days), while stuff like this [link] and this [link] took me a few hours. (The first maybe 4-5, the latter 5-8, with minor edits since then.) As much as I can, I try to crank out a painting in one sitting, since I lack patience... but surprisingly enough, I've managed to keep the past two artworks of mine spread out over a few days (since they've been... developed between real work out of procrastination :P )

Other than that, people tell me I'm fairly fast at sketching (I don't have any examples of my gesture drawing online, but I do probably hundreds of quick pen drawings of people, and I can usually get the general idea down in 1-3 minutes.)

Since I noticed that some of your work seemed more vector based, do you work in Illustrator or a similar program? Or is your process more akin to painting? (Just curious!)

Thank you for sharing your process. Wow! You are a fast painter. And quick at sketching too.

Yup, you guessed right. I work primarily in Illustrator. Sometimes, I combine vector with traditionally-painted textures. But for the most part, vector, with its scalability and preservation of visual information, suits my process. Especially since I tend to rework illustrations as I go along, lol. If I were more decisive about the visual solutions that I chose, I might be spending less time per illustration. But Illustrator makes it very tempting to tweak things infinitely.

And thx for sharing the link to the Paladin. It looks amazing! I agree that some good things take as long as they need to.

Wow... very good! I keep trying to do 3/4 (or is it 2/3? 4/5? e/pi?) profiles like this but I seem to like to get the eyes either too far apart or too close together.

:iconcherryricesammich:
CherryRiceSammich Featured By Owner Jul 20, 2012  Professional Digital Artist
Thank you! I guess it's pretty close to 3/4, I just snapped a picture and thought that was the closest angle to what I was going for.(I was actually aiming for having a slight chin tilt up, since a lot of the faces I draw never show the skin that connects the neck to the chin.)

I'm the same way with eyes, it actually took me three or four times to get the position/distance right, and then a little bit longer to work on the shape. Referencing from a photo made the process a lot easier. Just keep reworking until it looks right, I guess : ) Try to take a picture of yourself at an angle and draw it sometime! Self portraits are really, really tricky because people tend to be pretty self conscious, but you'll know right away whether or not it does or doesn't look like you.

I should try doing a self portrait :nod:

This guy did a self portrait of himself and all his characters [link] I've been wanting to do something like that for a while.

I had the idea to do something similar, but I don't think I'd want to be in the same room with some of them. One'd have me in a headlock, others would be interrogating me over why I made their lives turn out the way they did.
