another portrait from life, 3h, done in pscs5
looks so real
The noise/grain in the skin really makes these portraits photo-realistic! Do you do that with a brush or filter of some kind? Texture overlay.
I think that this would be amazing if you'd taken five hours, but to do it in 3 is unbelievable. The shadows and lighting are spot on, especially in the face with the slight strand of hair shadowed by the eyes. Makes me wish we were friends so you'd wanna draw me
