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.

You are such an inspiration to me. I cannot even fathom painting anything humanesque, especially using a computer! All I can manage to do is write and sketch with pencils. XD

This is a beautiful piece, don't you ever forget that! The way you can color emotion awes me.

This is absolutely stunning; 120+ hours well worth it. It certainly makes me curious about your novel as well.

She is SO gorgeous. I love everything about this picture: the colours, the realism, everything. Excellent job. Time well spent, I'd say!
