dir en grey: KYO -WIP- by krashkan dir en grey: KYO -WIP- by krashkan

it;s strange that they don;t have a category for Portraits in Paintings & Airbrushing.


anyway, kind of a WIP stage of dir en grey: KYO.

I just realized that it is a drawing and not a photograph. This is very good, actually more than that. Words cannot describe how beautiful this is. I don't even know what to say.

Are you doing this in Photoshop?

I wonder, are you using the smudge tool? In his wrist it looks like you are. And brushes at 100% opacity or are they lower? I tend to use hard brushes at about 25-35% for shading over a solid color. And each of his hairs done individually!
How big are you working on this, at least 200% of this size I would guess? I would think you must be, to get the detail in the piercings.
Do you sample from the photo or just pick colors off the palette?
This is, of course, amazing work and that's why I have to ask!! ^_^

yeah. XD

in some parts i am [like his wrist], although i don;t really like to use it too much. i always use 100% for brushes, because i;m too lazy to change the opacity back and forth whenever i have to, lol. and for his hair i use a 1px brush.
this is the actual size of the file, but i zoom in to about 200% or 300% for details.
i try not to be lazy and just use the eyedropper tool all over the place, but there were some colors that were impossible for me to find on my own, so i used it then.
thanks for all your questions; i hope i answered them well enough for you ^__^
