Jude Law by mcbdesign Jude Law by mcbdesign
I finally got my Wacom drawing tablet!
I fooled around with it for a couple hours to get the feel of it. It's so awesome. :faint: It's much better than a laptop mouse. ;)
So, I did some research on dA by looking around at all the amazing digital portraits, and decided to start my own.

This is Jude Law, and my first attempt at digital art ever. I drew everything on this from scratch on the computer. I used a reference, but no copying or tracing was involved. If you'd like me to post some progress pics, just comment so here.

It was really quite fun doing this.
I'd really appreciate some tips on digital portraits if any of you have any. I'd love to do more of these. I really had no clue what I was doing on this, though. XD I just went about it like I would do a drawing.

Wacom graphire4 :heart:
Adobe Photoshop CS
Time: over 3 days.

wooooooooo thats very realistic. Great work! One thing I think you could improve on which would make this even better is to detail the ears alittle more. But apart from that an amazing piece.

:wow: A very well done picture.......but, the only thing is his right eye looks slightly different from his left. But really, its no big deal really. It doesn't make your art any less impressive than it is. Keep up the good work.

I'm positive you won't regret buying a wacom when you get it, because it's simply amazing--a huge help with drawing on the computer.

BTW cute signature quote. :D

Superb!

I have one piece of advice: just keep doing what you're doing :)

I've been scanning the picture trying desperately to look for stuff, but it's hard because it's so damn good. Maybe the ear lobes are a tiny bit out of whack? I see his head is tilted, very slightly, but his earlobes seem a bit more tilted than they should be. Or maybe the lobes are right, but it needs more 'inner hole' on our left, to shorten the lobe. Or maybe that's just how Jude is :)

Thankyou. It means a lot to know people like what I'm doing. :)

I agree with the ear problems. I'll update him and make them more detailed after I finish the Stewart/Colbert project I'm working on. Thanks for the feedback! :)

:shrug: I really have no idea. I suppose it's just the way the eyes come out. I always start out with them in a piece and work from there. That's where people seem to feel emotion from my stuff since I've posted on here.
I'm still trying to figure out how I work artistically, so I'll get back to ya when I figure it all out. lol :) It's all a learning experience. :nod:

:icondidelphis-virginiana:
I used to start with the eyes too... but they never turned out anywhere near as good as yours^^ but then again... I used to only do anime... >.< Now I am trying to move away from that style ^^
