I have nothing left to say for this piece, other than I've never spent that many hours on a painting in my life. Good god, what a learning experience.
My only goal was to create a portrait as photo-realistic as possible with Dawn in it. I think I got pretty close. Also to serve as a possible book cover for when I complete the first novel in the series.
God my hands. They regret this entirely.
This is like a tenth of the original size, so it's scaled down quite a bit. I'll add closeups later if need-be.
Time: I lost count at 120+ hours
Programs: SAI and Photoshop
Dawn and Artwork belong to Me; Take her and I cut you up, bro.
