One year ago, I uploaded my last picture in my gallery here ... so it's long long ago ... But now I return and here it is ...
This is actually the picture I've created for the contest. Some friends of mine know of it. I didn't do it in the contest, so at least now I'm free to share this piece of Art with you all.
Hey, and don't tell me WHY I didn't do it ... haha ... whatever ... perhaps they simply don't like this ... or I'm bad ... whatever ... I don't know ...
But indeed, I like this picture. She is created for a short story ... perhaps you'll see her again, who knows ... Her name is Jelline ... from various references ... but no, she is mine ...
You know my standards: no photoretouch, no filters, no manipulation, no paid-content ... just Photoshop and Wacom. Original size dimension: 2000x2678, separated in nearly 78 layers ... that's what I call complicated Art!
Thank you all for your last comments and views, thank you for help and guidance, thank you all ... especially of course Tim, Timothy Burns, a true artist and great teacher of mine!
By the way, hey, I know it's World Cup now, hey, come on, and this doesn't fit ... I'm working on a player's portrait but I don't think it gets ready that fast to reach the final ... but who knows? Keep the spirit!

I don't use photoshop to paint so this just seems like a miracle to me, very fantastic and unique. Thank you for posting it.

Well I do use Photoshop and I can never get my hair to look that good. Great job. Envious - moi? You bet.

Saw the ebot that you'd posted something and had to look and see. So very glad I did, the finished image here is superb work, you've developed so much life and personality in her. You're very kind to me, I was afraid my critique was to direct -so hard to gage intent in the written word- glad to be of some small help. Very professional image here, your best without any doubt. your friend, tim.

The skin tones are excellent they really bring the best of the image out. My only crit (and it is a little one IMO) is that the eye on the right side of the picture is a lot less detailed than the one on the left side of the picture and looks a little flat. All in all a really beautiful image.
