Excelelnt work. Could you talk about your process for the hair, which is really nicely done?
 
Old 09 September 2008   #5
Great work Del, this is my favorite yet! The hair, the flame, the leaves, bravo!

Thanks Valentina, Loren, Kirk, and David! Thanks lipthepencilboy, the hand looks OK to me but I have been working on it for too long to be objective probably when I look at it again in a few weeks I'll see it and can hopefully fix it, thanks for your comments.

Loren, for the hair I'm basically just building it all up on one layer, starting from big areas of color, then clumps and locks of hair, and then some strands at the end. I go back and forth between normal, overlay, multiply, and linear dodge brush modes, and at the end I glow out certain hilit areas.

If you are interested I wrote up something more detailed with images showing the progression, it's here:

Thanks, hope that was useful -

Absoutely stunning; as are the rest of your gallery pieces. October is my favorite month of the year as well-I had to comment! I really like the fire effect on his fingers, and those eyes are captivating.

I'll have to look for you on DA. XD
