This is my first project made with Photoshop and my new Wacom!
I had this image in mind for months....I was just waiting to get my wacom for chrismas!......but now...this is my first but not my last 2D project!......I used a picture of the girl for reference...but i did it all with the airbrush....if you have any comments...go ahead! will surely help me getting better in my works!...

I used to try airbrush couple of years ago....but it was too messy and I didn't like all the stuff you have to buy and all the cleaning...etc...etc....that's why I really Photoshop.....ya don't have to clean your Wacom all the time!....Yes, my reference had the same position...cauz it was easier to practice with a good reference....but be sure that the next project will not have any..!
....thanks for your comments....

Excellent work - I am most fond of the way the hair is detailed. Makes me want to invest in one of those fancy wacoms now.

Could we see the original reference just for fun?

Nice....But since you used a lot of high-lighting on the body and the metal the hair (though very detailed) looks unreal....maybe some high-lights there. This one could be on the Heavy-metal magazine.....:D

.....Your are right Sigma!'s a little Angelina Jolie.....did you find out by the face..or the body???......hehe!.........
...Your are right too Sangotten....the hair could use more high lightning.....maybe i was too focused on details, that i didn't see that before!....that's why all your comments are important to me!......but who said that art had to be perfect???

Cool man, maybe smooth out below her knee and bring up the black level in her naughty area,... just enough to see some leg retreat into the dark. Or maybe I just need to get outside more!

can you please show the reference photo... it would be easier to criticize...

For you guys who wants to see the reference photo that i used for this it is!....

Simply superb!!

And I so agree on the airbrush comments!! ;)
I used to make plastic scale models of aircraft. But the painting was always such a hassle... you can't spray laquer paints inside the house so it has to be good weather, and in winter cleaning an airbrush at 0 degrees is not funny!! Not to mention running out of CO2 bottles halfway the paintjob! So nowadays I only make virtual models on my PC!! :p Not nearly as messy! :)
And additional benifit: virtual models dont collect dust!!! :D

You're right Skyraider.....and It's easier to carry a CD with all your portefolio than a dozen of 3'x4' paintings.........
