Wall, Henning Ludvigsen (2D)

Title: Wall
Name: Henning Ludvigsen
Country: Norway
Software: Photoshop

The idea for this painting has been laying inside the back of the head for quite a while, and I was basically just looking for a excuse to make it. Originally, it was ment for an art competition, but since I didn’t go there after all the painting wasn’t used for anything special.

Painted during quite a few evenings using Photoshop with a Wacom tablet. Reference used for the character.

Wow! You topped yourself again The posture and skin texture is impeccable, and the details in her hair are simply stunning. I really love the sinister mood you've created with this lightning and palette. Truly amazing.

Can't help but feel sorry for her though, breaking her nails like that Ouch...

Stunning Henning! By far one of your best. I'd have been so tempted to up the contrast and saturation here, but thankfully you haven't. Great stuff!

JUST love the skin tones! I think there's too much calm in the face... with all the bleeding I would have thought there would be more tension there buuut maybe that's intentional love it anyway!

Truly awesome! The skin are amazing!

Amazing work as always! love the saturation in this piece! 4 Stars!!

Just a query, I've noticed in your step by step that you start your images in black and white. Does this method offer any advantage as opposed to colouring the image from the start?

Also what method do you use to convert the black and white image to colour? I assume you don't paint over the image again using colour.

Nice painting work!

Great, Great anatomy and skin tones, good textural feel too. I think if she had a more expressive look on her face it would be even better. Good Job.

I like it - sexy and terrible...

I guess this hurts, skratching wall with nails until they bleed .

I miss here legs, whole character would look nicer, on my humble opinion.

But the upper body itself is top notch from what I percept now.
Keep it up mate
