Summer comes.., Natascha Roeoesli (2D)



Title: Summer comes..
Name: Natascha Roeoesli
Country: Greece
Software: Photoshop

..hopefully soon.

This started out as a sketch and color try out for the last addition to my season series.
I didn't really feel like starting on it but I felt like painting something that helps me get over my longing for summer, sun and warmth.

The more I doodled around and tried out color and lightning I knew it will be the finish to my series. The format is different and I will adjust and repaint the older three to match this in size and quality/style.

This is the first painting I tried to be a bit more brave with light and shadows.

Other then that - I was looking for a warm, sunny and soft airy feeling. I wanted her to have pretty red cheeks..even a slight hint of a bit too much sun..

Other elements are in this that I myself again link to summer..but I let you do your own interpretation :)

Hope you enjoy and thanks for looking :)

And since so much detail gets lost in the smaller size:
100% Cutouts

25% Cutouts

A lot of details get lost and look quite wonky on the smaller size.

Hey again tascha. Great work, love it. Really like that saturated red with the white. Blur works well. Love the lighting too (particularly on the dress)

thehe.. I commented this before it even appeared to here

Love the mood and warm feeling of it. The girl's expression is very interesting, it doesn't reveal almost anything, but the same time she looks very sensitive and mysterious. That's the way I see her..
Love the details and that distant balloon against blue sky. Lovely!

Muchas gracias - I am really happy if I achieved that. Funny thing though - I have solely used the hard edged brush for this except for some single hair strands where I have used the airbrush for the first time in ages

Aridiel
Thanks! I was pretty much experimenting with painting the depth of field instead of just using the blur tool. It works very nice while using the hard edged brush at very low flow.
Also still trying to find a good way betwen detailing and NOT overdetailing.

Haha - I guess her face is a matter of taste. You would have prefered an asian looking girl? To be honest I am quite happy how her face turned out. It is pretty much how I wanted it to be: Looking somewhat young and old the same time..with a strong face and somewhat glowing. After all the saying that "She is in the summer of her life" pretty much means she might still look young but is already strong and grown up - knowing where she is going in life. Ok, I just love to put a lot of metaphors into my paintings..

waheednasir
Hello waheed Thank you! It's an unusually sweet palette for me isn't it?

Kornel
Many thanks to you :]

Sh@ke
Michael, thanks a lot for the compliment What do you mean by GI/finalgather lighting?

Alfy
thank you

rawwad
Thanks!

kisalon
Kirsi, hi again! Yup, thanks for the guestbook entry and the compliment :]
Her expression, I tried to go for a sliiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiight hint of a smile and a look like: "Hey, this is an invitation. Even if you don't want to join me - summer is coming anyway" Hehe I know - kind of wierd huh? I can't always explain the decisions I make

midcgi
Such a wonderful compliment - many thanks. I know most people probably think - yeah just another girl painting but I really do try to make every aspect fit the idea I had in my mind. Every little decision I make has a meaning - at least to me

cabotinecco
Thank you Love your avatar by the way!

And specially for Aly:
the full painting in 25%
