In the wind by katiedesousa In the wind by katiedesousa
Just a personal drawing I did when I couldn't sleep a few nights ago.

About 2 hours, sorry it's just a sketch, there are mistakes but I don't feel like fixing them or cleaning up the brush strokes... I like brush strokes. :heart:

PS CS3

She's worried about something, such sensitive lips.

I find that it has a better (and more traditional look) if you leave it this way instead of smoothing out the strokes :) lovely!

shun the mustbecleanguys :D one of the greatest and successful realismpainters I have ever witnessed said "its not photorealistic at all. the painting is in reality friggin huge. you can see brushstrokes all over the canvas if you would stand right in front of it." and anyway strokes are fun :D have you ever played morrowind ? I loved that minilevel where you could enter the canvas and suddenly all landscapes have been strokelike :D
