photo realistic art

Captain Janeway

I’ve always admired photo realistic art. I practiced and practiced until I got near enough there. Now I’ve hit close I’m not even sure how much I like it, it’s really hard to get back though. The process kind of embeds itself and my focus is hard to move off into a different direction. Does anyone else get that? Ironic really, I want so badly to be able to do concept characters and dynamic poses. Guess I’ll go practice that.

This I painted digitally in Sketchbook Pro. I love how dynamic and fluid it is. I also love the real media brushes in Painter so I dallied around there in the final stages.

Process photos are on my ArtStation, just search for ‘crisisenvy.’
