Friend As Cleopatra, Richard Yarbrough (2D)

Title: Friend As Cleopatra
Name: Richard Yarbrough
Country: United States
Software: Painter, Photoshop

Hello, this is my first finished digital painting, about time my wife says. It is a portrait of a friend's friend. She emailed me the photo and I sketched it into Corel Painter with my new Wacom tablet. I used Photoshop for some editing and Painter for all the painting. The blending tools in Painter just seem so much more powerful than Photoshop's smudge tool. I wanted to get rid of the boring straight on "photo flash" lighting so I tried to create a new light source rather than the one in the photo, that was hard to do. Please feel free to critique it. Also, a question for any one who responds (hopefully at least one will), what are the pixel dimensions of your average painting. This one is originally 4000x2000 i think. But, if there is no need to do it this large I need to know. Thanks for everything and for all the immensely inspiring artwork here.

I'm suprised no one commented on this. Really nice expression! Great pose. I'm not sure about the background, but the character is fab!

Thank you poshspice. I really appreciate your feelings on it, and absolutely right about the atrocious background. I am just eager to move onto my next project. By the way, really wonderful illustration of the spray painting devil.
