Ailill And Roksana, Linda Bergkvist (2D)

Title: Ailill And Roksana
Name: Linda Bergkvist
Country: Sweden
Software: Photoshop

The picture above is a portrait I did for the sake of fun. I am still working on my book so the main bulk of my work can't be posted (and the book is postponed a little because I've taken ill). At any rate, in between other things, I do a few portraits from time to time. I find it very relaxing to have no pressure for backgrounds or full-body paintings, but instead just focus on the features and the feel of the image.
This is the second painting I feel like showing - mostly to say thank you to whomever worked on V:tM - Bloodlines... I find that game an insane amount of fun.

I used Painter and Photoshop for both of these, Ailill was finished a week or so ago and I did Roksana yesterday (and if you're interested in viewing another image of her... click
And I am truly sorry these are just a couple of portraits - I do tons of more intricate material, I just can't share it just yet :[
I can resist everything but temptation.

wow~~~~~~~~~~~~~great work~~~~

i really like the first one. its a nice fresh look that you went for ( from your usual darker themed pieces ). the colours also very much work for me. great stuff. only thing ( and maybe im wrong ). perhaps the left eye ( her right ) is too close to the nose? on the left eye ( her left ) we see a lot of the eye all the way to the nose, but if that eye was the same distance from the nose as her right then it would be a little further away?

Hi Linda !

Great works, as usual.
However (but it is only a personal opinion), I think that the 2d one is really too close to photography.
I mean, you have great skills for painting, and maybe it would be more interesting to see some brush strokes to make it more... "painting" and a bit different from reality...
(dunno if I'm really clear ><)

But as I said, it's only a personal opinion.... and some people must be totally in disagree with that :-p

anyway, 5 stars

Linda linda linda... you set the bar for everyone in CGtalks' 2D forum.
This is just stunning, of course.
The hair in the first one knocked me to the ground, and then i saw the hand and fell down again.
Can we see the ref images?

How are you feeling? not ill anymore?

I could stare in these eyes for hours, hypnotic, yet incredible.

Wohoo, totally amazing! They have so much personality. For some reason I really like second one.
