Paint it Black_improved_ by sab-m Paint it Black_improved_ by sab-m
- July 2008 edit - Reworked the shading and black marks on her. I only had a small jpg version, since my HD crashed.
I will resubmit the print too :]


(Here's a little speed painting. But i like it, i'll dig the subject later, with a serie of black background illustrations.
I've got a REAL illustration coming up this week end, i need time to finish it.
So, just to wait, enjoy.

Photoshop, 1 hour.

Edit > changed some stuffs, canvas size and stuffs, and submitted it as a print :) )

intriguing concept - it would work nicely on a t-shirt, the way she is composed out of the background is lovely.

Yay! You're still alive! I can't see a huge difference in this and the original, but I liked the original just fine so I don't think you've done anything to make it worse.

Hahaha I love this, it reminds me of the movie Sunshine tons of negative space and the black really focuses the eye to your character. Congrats.

Yay! More from black-clothes wearing female series! I hope that illustration turns out well, I'm anxious to see it. And I fav'ed this, just FYI. Question: is the light source supposed to be off the left side of the page or is it down and to the left of the page?

Gorgeous! I love the warm tones and the textured shading (wish I could do that...:XD:). The face looks somewhat flat compared to the rest of her body, but otherwise lovely. :love:

en tout cas, j'aime!

How is this not a REAL illustration? I know I tell you this too much, but you're far too hard on yourself, this is very nice. the pose, the composition, the colors the use of negative space. REAL illustration indeed.
