Liu Shi Shi as Long Kui (Chinese Paladin 3)

31st January 2010 at 5:41 pm

Dear Chibi,

Today I decided to practice and brush up my digital painting skills. I’m an amateur when it comes to lighting and colour; as you can see in the work below. But hey, everyone has to start somewhere, right?

I randomly did a portrait drawing of Liu Shi Shi as Long Kui from Chinese Paladin 3. I haven’t watched it yet and I have no idea who Liu Shi Shi is, but she has a pretty face so there you go :D

I spent the most time and effort on her face, and got pretty lazy by the end of it and quickly rushed the hair and clothes x_x I tend to do that a lot which is really bad. It’s not complete but it will probably stay incomplete.

The hardest aspect is still the skin tones and to blend them together well. Right now you can clearly see blobs of paint >_< This is still something that boggles my mind..how to do it? @__@

And just for the fun of it, I added a filter:

Wow, doesn’t she look like a real person..? (If you ignore the scrappy hair XD) Looks a bit like Liu Yi Fei too actually o_o

Anyway, it was good fun and practice :) Hope you enjoyed looking at the work-in-progress. It took about 6 hours total.

    Cool drawing =). Yeah, it’s hard to get those blobs of colour to go away. I remember that.

    love the way you did the skin. I just think it can be a bit smoother. But its an awesome painting still!

    Do a joey painting next =)

    Thanks Jacky :D

    yeah, I’ll really need more practice with blending the colours. Maybe there’s a good photoshop brush for that…

    And, you know what? I was thinking of doing a Joey one too XD
