PS: Full Time...

Was having trouble figureing out exactly what I wanted. Took more time erasing and redrawing then I should have. Ill post another because I really love where this is going.

About an hour in PS. Fun times experimenting with different brushes...

I was also experimenting - with a new technique I've learned just two days before :arteest:
53 minutes in photoshop

Well, "the mask" was again my topic, but somehow it turned to be an illustration for my favourite story from George R. R. Martin "In the Lost Lands", hope it doesn't matter :)

UPDATE: you can see a little more finished picture here -

"To be or not to be... a robot?"

Photoshop, ~30 min.

EDIT: I decided to use remaining 25 min and push this sketch a bit of forward in sense of details

Here are few thoughts of mine about "the mask".
Many today's women live their daily life under heavy makeups, mainly because of the media, fashion magazines and the self image promoted by some cover models. You might be surprised to see how many little bottles and tubes that they have to use and how much time they have to spend every morning to make this "daily mask". One day, maybe things can become much simpler if they can just let the skin breath freely under the sun and still feel good about themselves.

Stefan, its funny to see your way of thinking. My initial idea was a robot picking a mask from a row of masks :)

Hahah, yeah, one of my first ideas involved robots standing in front of gigantic array of human masks, but since i really suck at drawing human faces i thought 'lets try something easier first' :)

You all make fantastic pictures.

Been working with creating papiermachemasks all week, and when I enter CG-talk I find this thread. :-)
My painting didn't come out quit the way i wanted but still...hmmm
A snapshotimage of wearing a mask and turning around to say Buh for fun to the children who are trailing allong behind you laughing :-) I warmly recomend it, it's hillarius and generates lots of laughter.
