The effects on this piece are absolutely INCREDIBLE, the slightly faded edges give it a... calligraphy/ graffiti look, it's hard to explain. The lines have the elegance and volume of thick brush strokes, but the texture and slight fade outs of a stencil cut out and an airbrush.

Very well done!!

I love the stroke style here, the undulation of line thickness, and the colors used. Simple looking, but extreamly beautiful and captivating.

you really dont, though the texture has it looking like its on natural paper, kudos to the ps tricks. I like the abstract qualities about it. i especially like the shading from the dark lines over the eyes... *kinna reminds me of a sunset for some reason*

guava Featured By Owner Feb 27, 2007  Professional Digital Artist
yeah, the eyes reminded ME of a sunset too! they were kind of fun to do.

but yes, i should draw more... i just never have time :(

I like this piece. Its very simple, but I think that adds to its appeal. I also noticed that this seems very different from your many other pieces in your gallery. Is this a new direction that you're going?

Regardless, very nice.

guava Featured By Owner Feb 27, 2007  Professional Digital Artist
thanks! and no... i probably won't be drawing like this very much... whenever i want to do a quick photoshop drawing i do this sort of thing, but most of my art will still be traditionally drawn and then coloured on the comp ^^; i have a hard time drawing fine lines on my tablet because it lags, so i have to use a pen or pencil by hand.
