Digital painting

Over the past few years I have been painting digitally. However I have not tried to progress my skills, I have lulled over the same level of work and made no real difference in the work I produce. But now I have decided to do at least one painting a week. I will be working mostly in portraits, and possibly in texture mattes.

This is my first addition, this took about 12 hours to complete, there are things I am not happy with, I struggle with painting hair, even if I try to follow step by step instructions on how I should do it properly I still can not seem to get the hang of it. But I will give it time.


  1. the face is very well painted, its just its not in proportion to everything else.. its one of the best ive seen you do =)

  2. looking good joe. the skin is well painted. atm the hair looks to shiney and smooth. you could try useing photoshop hair brushes? this'll make all those strands come out easier. just a thought.
