Blackout: Astrid III by Charlie-Bowater Blackout: Astrid III by Charlie-Bowater
Sorry, another half assed portrait of Astrid .__.

I started this one afternoon at Uni and I've been tweaking with it since. The anatomy is ever so slightly fucked, but worse things have happened. 8D

Photoshop CS3
Wacom Intuos3
Blackout; Muse. I could probably name an entire galleries worth after muse songs. Damnit >_>

it is clearly visible that you are an female artist, you are able to let look normal and just over-sexy or to cute-to be real. astrid really looks like a living person and that is awesome, keep up your good work presenting realistic images of woman!

Astrid has a feral expression on her face that I really like. She seems so soft and gentle in the other paintings but here she seems dangerous and wild. It's amazing how the lines on her face can change and show all these different qualities.

Hi there
Thankyou for using my stock, however I'm disappointed that I had to find out from searching for my own name.
It does state quite clearly in my rules that I must be notified of stock use so please make sure you do so in the future :)

Your approach to realism is something I've been trying to achieve, and yet you still find a way to add your own style and unrealistic feel to it.

Thanks for the inspiration.

I have a serious problem with freckles... It's a conscious effort to paint someone WITHOUT them. I love freckles and little imperfections XD
