The Gaze by Solitairemiles The Gaze by Solitairemiles
I found this amazing photo by :iconalcove: but it didn't have a face. So I painted a face in with my Wacom, and added a sunset into the window to give it a little more light and substance. I used my own textures from :iconsolstock: I had to really paint up the face to smooth out all the photo texture and shadowing, I hope it's texture matches the rest of the photo. I found myself adding more texture to the face. I'm kind of in a quandry about it. Any ideas?

This is so beautiful! It looks like a 2 or 3 hundred year old painting, yet so accurate like a photograph!

Wow. This is very impressive. From the floorboards, to the textures on the walls, the colour of her dress and the detail in everything, to the lighting. This is amazing.

I do, but not through DA. I don't like the quality of their printing. I use a great giclee printer in Atalnta, and if you'd like one you can order through paypal on my website. Just let me know and I'll send you the info.
I'm honored that you would want one! :hug:

interesting. i think the face is the best part of the image. In fact i think the rest of the image needs to catch up to the face. Perhaps the whole thing should be painted?
